Any levee failures will be the fault of the Trump Administration/MRC, and perhaps Trump himself, as surely as if they/he had blown up the levee, because they/he refused to open the Morganza Spillway. The final say for opening the Morganza lies with Trump appointee and head of the MRC (Mississippi River Commission) Richard Kaiser.
Waterford Nuclear Power Station and Storm surge watch. Waterford is protected by a levee — a levee which may have been weakened by Trump-MRC-Richard Kaiser’s failure to open the Morganza spillway and by the extra water flow going to the Bonnet Carre, which faces Waterford NPS.

Gulf of Mexico’s oxygen devoid ‘dead zone’ could hit near-record 8,000 square miles this year, shocking report reveals
- NOAA says the low-oxygen area is likely to cover about 7,800 square miles
- This is in large part due to high spring rainfall, carrying fertilizer downriver
- Nutrients feed algae, which die and decompose on sea floor, using up oxygen
- The record set in 2017 is 8,776 square miles (22,700 square kilometers)
