Dire Prediction for Gulf of Mexico ‘dead zone’

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)

Is ETP’s Bayou Bridge Pipeline why they are Failing to Open the Morganza Spillway?

CEO of Energy Transfer Partners, Kelcy Warren, gave over $100,000 to Trump’s campaign. Energy Transfer Partners, of Dakota Access Pipeline notoriety, is majority owner (60%), as well as operator, of the recently completed Bayou Bridge II Pipeline from Lake Charles to St. James Parish, Louisiana, which passes through the Atchafalaya basin. http://web.archive.org/web/20190321001745/https://www.energytransfer.com/ops_bayou_bridge.aspx https://archive.li/hLBsj It connects to Bayou Bridge I pipeline, which runs from Nederland, Texas to Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Is this the “private property” that the Army Corps says that it’s concerned about, when discussing their failure to open the Morganza Spillway, while private and public property along the Mississippi is allowed to flood, and shipping, farmland, and industry to be (currently) impacted, and over a million lives put at risk, if the levees fail? https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/06/08/operation-of-the-morganza-floodway-again-postponed-with-apparently-serious-repercussions-down-river/

Morganza Spillway opening postponed indefinitely

“The opening of the Morganza Spillway planned for this Sunday has been postponed indefinitely since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) does not currently forecast needing to open it.

On Midwest Floods, Media Silence and Weather Manipulation Topic

NOTE: Because the Midwest floods are so massive and originated in such an unusual way we are doing separate post on the topic. But going to look up familiar videos of peculiar clouds and sky scenes from channels dedicated to just that topic we find Google has recently banned the whole topic. When you look  up the popular tag “strange skies” the only results that show up are from CBS and NBC etc. and do not include anything strange at all.

ALSO: The media is stunningly silent on floods affecting US and Canada agriculture, destroying the whole growing season for most farmers.  This should be headline news for continuous days. Instead, it’s the same old celebrity worship garbage featured across all commercial platforms.

Below are numbered so comments can refer to particular ones.

They are letting the Mississippi River go the direction that it wants to go, anyway, but in a controlled manner. The flood structure is to control the river and keep the Mississippi from shifting away from New Orleans. An uncontrolled diversion (i.e. levee breaches-failures) could result in catastrophic failures impacting Baton Rouge, Waterford nuclear power station, chemical corridor “cancer alley” and/or New Orleans.

USACE to operate Morganza Control Structure
Published May 28, 2019
NEW ORLEANS – Mississippi River Commission President and United States Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi Valley Division Commander Maj. Gen. Richard Kaiser has approved the request to operate the Morganza Control Structure and Floodway. If forecasted conditions remain unchanged, the operation will begin on June 2, 2019.

Current forecasts indicate that the river will reach a stage in…

Mississippi River High Water Chaos 🤐

Another Mississippi rise threatens to trigger Morganza Spillway opening

“Heavy rains expected in the Midwest portion of the Mississippi River Valley during the next week have prompted Army Corps of Engineers officials to warn interests within the Morganza Floodway portion of the Atchafalaya River Basin that the Morganza Spillway structure could be opened as soon as June 2.

More than 5 inches of rain is expected to fall across parts of Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Iowa over the next seven days, according to the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center.” . . . (more)

The Advocate – Mississippi River breaks 92-year old flood stage record; here’s when water could go down

“As of Tuesday, the river stood around 44 feet at Baton Rouge and is forecast to keep rising, though only slightly, into the weekend. It is not projected to overtop the levees, but meteorologists have said they expect the river to remain in flood stage well into summer.

The persistent high water has prompted a pair of openings of the Bonnet Carré spillway this year — the first time it’s been used twice in one year.  . . . (more)

“NATCHEZ — The Mississippi River has been above the flood stage of 48 feet at Natchez for 137 days as of Tuesday, which is well longer than any time since 1927 when the previous record of 77 days above flood stage at Natchez was set.” . . . (more)

“America has an Achilles’ heel. It lies on a quiet, unpopulated stretch of the Mississippi River in Louisiana, 45 miles upstream from Baton Rouge. Rising up from the flat, wooded west flood plain of the Mississippi River are four massive concrete and steel structures that would make a pharaoh envious: the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ greatest work, the two billion-dollar Old River Control Structure (ORCS). “
