[quote]& why would they open the Morganza 1st? There has many years the Bonnet Carre was opened that the Morganza wasn't utilized. Not sure on ratio, but I'd imagine it's at least 2 - 1 ratio. It's not like they just make this stuff up as they go. [/quote] The CORPS is mandated by Congressiona...

[quote]He wants to know expected crest at black water:river at acme if Morganza is opened. [/quote] To be honest I am not all that familier with the Black River. I see it is predicted to crest at 48.5ft on Jan 18. The Red at Alexandria will crest on the 13th and Little River at Rochelle will c...

Now that I got that out the way. This may or may not be common knowledge but the BC will begin to be opened around 10 am on Sunday. Only a handful of bays will be open this day. Additional bays will be opened everyday. At this point 250-300 of the 350 total bays may only need to be opened. As...

The drop in crest from 44ft to 43.5ft has nothing to do with a possible Morganzaa opening. The forecast upriver was reduced thus BR followed suit. An additional drop would happen if Morganza was opened. ...

First off I have never once told anyone not to take measures to protect themselves and their property. Maybe I have been somewhat dismissive but others on this thread have been over dramatic. I am quite aware of the current conditions and the conditions that existed in previous floods. Any flood...
