Morganza Spillway to Open? Yes or No?

The people who will be affected by the Morganza Spillway being opened are understandably nervous and upset about the uncertainty of their situation. Even though no formal announcement has been made as yet, everyone is expecting one soon.

Here is a good video from The Times Picayune, “Mississippi River Flooding update with Mark Schleifstein.” After the obligatory commercial at the beginning, the video takes a few seconds to start, but it’s worth watching. Schleifstein does a good job of explaining the situation and when to expect an announcement. I think if I lived in the expected inundation area, I’d be making preparations to leave. This does not look good at all. Sort of gives me a sick feeling.
