Before It’s News – Watch Louisiana Apocalyptic Flooding  < PHOTOS

“El Niño has dramatically pounded Louisiana residents with one inch of rain approximately every hour over the past fourteen hours, creating an apocalyptic scene.”

“…The severe storm risk will remain Thursday, with the state capitol Baton Rouge and New Orleans being impacted. Both cities are on the swollen Mississippi River and its tributaries, dependent on the Mississippi Levee to prevent what could be catastrophic flooding. New Orleans is below sea level

Officials are warning that floodwaters could rise above a levy, placing thousands of homes and businesses in jeopardy. A forced evacuation has been ordered. Many residents are having to rely on first responders in boats, including  the National Guard and sheriff deputies….”

Let’s hope the damp levees around the nuke plants hold!

Weather report (bad through the weekend too)

” Heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected to continue on Friday. Again, 1-3” of precipitation will be possible. In addition to flash flooding, a coastal flood advisory is in place as the combination of heavy rain and southerly winds will keep runoff from readily draining into Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas. Backwater flooding in the typical trouble spots could be an issue. “

NEW MADRID FAULT ALARM!!

COMMENT on ENE-NEWS

“Sorry to interrupt this thread, but the ground is smoking, gas is pluming, and the New Madrid area is booming! The fire department is leaning toward seismic explanation!!

Trenton Fire Department
February 29 at 3:11pm · Trenton, MO, United States ·
There have been reports of loud, unexplained booming noises at night in the Trenton area, and a lot of people have questions.

To put it bluntly, we do not know what is causing them – and neither does anybody else.

This also does not appear to be a local phenomena- these sounds have been reported in different areas of the US for a while now.

There are a lot of theories; people often compare the sound to that of fireworks, there is a weather phenomena called a “cold boom” which can produce this type of noise, and the behavior of groundwater (or fracking fluid) in general can cause such noises, the shifting of tectonic plates can cause similar phenomena, and then of course there are many possible man-made causes, such as the “sonic boom” of aircraft traveling at speeds in excess of Mach 1.

These noises have not been localized enough for us in this area to pin point them, and the lack of seismographic monitoring equipment this far north in Missouri is a factor in buttoning down a geological origin. The distribution of reports in the US seems to roughly coincide with areas of known seismic activity, so a geological explanation seems likely.”

Cause of recurring booms remains a mystery
