New Orleans And The Mississippi River

Am I the only one who questions what will happen when the swollen Mississippi heads down to New Orleans? Ask a media figure this question and you’ll get that ‘deer in the headlights’ look.

I don’t know if New Orleans is in danger again. No one is coming out and saying anything about it. No one is saying that there’s nothing to worry about. Likewise, no one is saying that there is something to worry about. Why not?

UPDATE: Ask and ye shall receive.  donald answers the question in a comment, which I’m bringing forward.

new orleans won’t be in danger from the new flood waters because we have spillways above the city.
