Wash us away


A lot of terms are floating around in reports of the Mississippi River flood — Bonnet Carre Spillway, Morganza Spillway, Old River Control Structure, river stages, flood gauges, crests, and the floods of 1927 and ’37.

What does it all mean, exactly?

The Mississippi River, normally one-half mile wide at Memphis, is now nearly 3 miles wide. As the River continues setting record crests along a swollen path of watery destruction, many have begun to ask, “Is this the Big One that makes New Orleans a Backwater?

  1. A very informative piece at Down With Tyranny.
    I’ll never forget going fishing with my Uncle in Baton Rouge. I was just a kid of about 9, when he parked at the base of a levee to the Mississippi. As we were climbing up the levee I could see a huge barge above me. I looked back down where his car was parked and back up at the barge and remember thinking to myself…”this is wrong, very wrong.”
    I wish nothing but the best for all those good folks who live by the river. We are weeks away from finding out how this saga ends.
