People need to be prepared with some food stuffs for several days even if you don’t live next to a dam or a giant sinkhole. It’s just common sense.

    • Louisiana sediments where is it going

      Losing Ground: Southeast Louisiana Is Disappearing, Quickly

      You should be saying where is all the Mississippi River sediment going
      sediment carried by the Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers has been reduced from 400 million tons per year to about 200 million tons per year[5,6]. This reduction in the amount of sediment carried by the river is the result of changes in land management practices that have reduced sediment runoff from the drainage basin and the trapping of sediment behind dams and locks constructed along the Mississippi and its tributaries, particularly the Missouri River

      The use of sand has reduced that amount of sediment going to Louisiana even more.
      Dredging and exporting river sand along the Mississippi river
      Yes Louisiana is losing ground

      • I think these industry canals are wrecking havoc on the coast with speed-up erosion and the biggest culprits want to tout rising sea level as the only cause. I know the sea is changing but they can’t wiggle out of the canal damage issue hiding behind that.

  1. The movie about Doucet Island (the washtub) titled Beasts of the Southern Wild was just shown on tv here in NZ. I enjoyed the movie and checked out the present situation. There is only a thin strip of the island left now as 98% of it has been submerged/eroded. I saw a comment that the bed of the Mississippi is above the surrounding flood plain due to the levees holding in the sediments – so that the entire river is a virtual aqueduct all the way to the gulf. Scary.

    • Have we learn anything from our pass

      Roosevelt’s “New Deal”
      New Deal Documentary, The River (1938)

      Documentary The Plow That Broke the Plains
      The America’s breadbasket to the world
      The great drought and the Dust Bowl from 1931-38 or ’39.

      What Happens to the U.S. Midwest When the Water’s Gone?
      There talking about the Ogallala aquifer these days
      When we drained the Ogallala aquifer will that be the end of the America’s breadbasket to the world ?

      • It’s a real shame they treat water like it’s unimportant. Ogallala Aquifer is really big … like an underground Miss. River …
