It looks like the Morganza Spillway will be opened by Saturday. The Army Corps of Engineers mandated that the spillway be opened when the water volume increases to 1.5 million cubic feet per second (cfs) along the Mississippi River at the Red River Landing. Currently it’s running at a 1.45 million cfs clip and by late Friday the Corps expects it to reach the 1.5 million cfs mark. And as projected, expect the floodway to open anytime from this Saturday through early next week with flooding conditions likely in low-lying unprotected areas to follow.
