If the river stage is going to break the record of 38.50 with an estimate of 50 why would the people inside the ring levees be safe? Shouldn't they leave too? I think a mandatory evac should be for all of the people in KS, Melville and all the people along the Atchafalaya river.

I also live in PB right on the Bayou. It is on 2 sides of my home. I live in the bend of the bayou. I think it's going to rise dramatically. I work in KS inside the ring levees and I fear for the worst here. I think all of KS should be evacuated.

They actually lowered the crest from 35 down to 32. So basically it is only going to get 1.7 feet higher than it is now (30.3' now).

Also, the Corps stated they only need to open 25% of the Morganza. They originally said they would open 50%. In 1973, they opened about 33% of the gates. The water should get to where it got in 1973 but I would expect it to be a bit lower.

Of course this could all change if the models are off and they have to open more gates.
