Bonnet Carre' Spillway

The River has risen 2 more feet in the past 5 days. The current is strong and swift.
I feel certain that the Spillway will have to be opened to prevent flooding in New Orleans, which is why it was built in the first place.

Nice Shot Coleen. The river is very dangerous with the water level so high. A pilot on a tug was killed around Convent the other night when a cable popped and cut thru the wheelhouse, almost cutting him in half. Did they open the spillway pins? It looks that way from your photo? CC
