Historic flooding could soon deluge parts of several Southern states along the lower Mississippi River – CBS

CBS News –
“Potentially historic” flooding threatens Southern states

“Scientists are warning that historic flooding could soon deluge parts of several Southern states along the lower Mississippi River, where floodwaters could persist for several weeks. The flood threat in the South will be discussed Thursday, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration releases its 2019 spring outlook.

Experts plan a briefing on their flood forecast at the National Water Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Thursday’s report is aimed at helping emergency managers and other safety officials to prepare for flooding.”

 

We will be watching the area nuke plants which cannot handle rising water very well.

  1. A big problem is the re-routing of the Mississippi. They are keeping it artificially in place to keep New Orleans a port and probably to better serve the oil and chemical industry. It wants to go SW. I believe that if they do not allow the Miss River to re-route gently (easing it over) that it will go eventually through one of the Louisiana reactor sites – Waterford in Killona. I need to look for my old research. They should divert the water north of Waterford (old river lock?) on the Miss to the SW (I think it’s toward the Atchafalaya River and probably the Atchafalaya basin) and facing Waterford to the east-southeast into Lake Ponchartrain.
