    BATON ROUGE ? Land and structures in the Morganza Spillway will flood, even if the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers does not open the gates, Commissioner of Agriculture Mike Strain and Gov. Bobby Jindal said today, May 6.

    ?It is inevitable that Morganza will flood and the system will top, regardless of whether they open the system,? Strain said at a press conference at the Governor?s Office of Homeland Security.
    Jindal said he has asked the Corps of Engineers to provide maps of areas that are anticipated to flood, with and without opening the gates. He said he wants people who would be affected to be able to prepare before the water starts rising.


    ?Even without opening the spillway, folks can expect flooding comparable to 1973,? the governor said. ?If they decide to open the spillway, it will be a lot more.?


    It is anticipated that the gates on about half of the spillway will be utilized, starting with a few at a time about Thursday of next week, Jindal said. But the Corps of Engineers has yet to make a final decision. Residents and property owners will be warned in time to evacuate and secure property.


    ?We?re doing everything we can to mitigate the impact,? he said. ?Our first priority is protecting people?s lives, then protect property.?

    Man, I'm small time. There's 2 groups that full time it that roll 10K lbs+ each a week, every week outta Dardanelle. They both have 2 boats and run 2 seperate crews. They're way to serious for me. And they smell like fish all the time. That ain't for me. I could do it for a living, but I'd rather not. Might take the fun out of it.
