Morganza Spillway To Open Soon
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.
