Bonnet Carre Breakdown (VIDEO)
by Liz Davas
New Orleanians can make a party out of any situation. A wedding, a funeral, or in this case, being stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on I-10 over the Bonnet Carre Spillway. Posted to Facebook by Lana Hunt, a video that was taken following a fiery crash Sunday afternoon shows stranded motorists coming together and gettin’ down. Check it all out in the video.
Dredgefest Considers Dirt in the Delta
A symposium on sediment included a visit to some of the South Louisiana sites that seek to control the surrounding waters. Christopher Staudinger offers a dispatch from the diversion excursion.
Just when it seemed that we had inherited all of the animal kingdom's cast-offs (we're not even getting into humans...), the Mighty Mississippi brought the giant, flying fish from up North. The LSU AgCenter says that the spring flooding and subsequent opening of the Bonnet Carre Spillway has deposited a heap of Asian carp into Lake Pontchartrain.
Mayor Mitch in Floodway Flyover
Earlier this week, Mayor Mitch went before the press to declare the city was safe from the Mighty Mississippi, yet again. But that did not preclude him from getting involved with the disaster from the 1,000 ft. level. On what was surely the "Tell it Like it Is" Helicopter Tour of 2011, Landrieu and Gen. Russell Honore (Ret.), among others, participated in a flyover of the Morganza and Bonnet Carre Spillways, which are currently funneling water around NOLA. In a statement, the City addressed the rather awkward position we've been placed in as upstream residents have been thrust into harm's way so New Orleans can survive.
Open the Gates!
Even after Missouri blew up a levee, the Mighty Mississipi continues to fill it up, and it's heading this way! Luckily, we have a great flood protection system with good levees...right? With the river crest expected to hit Memphis today, and river levels already rising down here, the Army Corps of Engineers took the unusual step of opening the Bonnet Carre Spillway this morning.
