River Unleashed

Vodpod videos no longer available.

An even better video ishere, part 2 here, but I can’t embed it, just click the link to watch the spillway flood when the gate is opened.

Wikimapia has some info and of course a map here.

This is supposed to relieve pressure on the river levees, and prevent flooding downstream  But it will flood the Atchafalaya River Basin, and take 3 days to reach the Gulf at Morgan City.
