Jindal Says Even Without More Rain, Louisiana Will Flood
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, La. – Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is advising residents to be prepared for a flood.
"Unfortunately for us, there's enough water in this system, even if we don't get additional rain, there's enough water in this system, we know that there are areas of Louisiana that are going to be flooded."
The Army Corps of Engineers is expected in the next few days to order the Morganza Spillway opened north of Baton Rouge. That will divert water away from the capital city through small communities in the Atchafalaya River basin west of New Orleans.
