November 21, 2009 - River Seeping Through Locks

Bonnet Carre' Spillway

The road through the Spillway is closed because the Mississippi River is so high it is seeping through the locks.
I have never seen water in this area in autumn in all the years I have lived here. Rains up north drained into the rivers that feed into the Mississippi. Hurricane Ida dumped much more rain, thus the River is extremely high for this time of the year. Usually, the River rises in late January and early spring and again in June.
