This is written for everyone who is interested in the flooding. The flooding got so bad that decided to open the spillways to help the river go in a different direction. They opened spillway to make the water move away from homes and businesses.

Is this going to be a spin-off of Hurricane Katrina, but instead have it happen by a riverflow. My other main concern i have is, how did all this water get to where it is today? What happened for this amount of water to be where it is, damaging most of the stuff in its path?

MirandaA5This weeks article is titled "New Orleans gets flood help; Memphis breathes easier." On msnbc.com posted by msnbc.com new services on May 9, 2011. This article is about how there is tons of water going to overflow in Louisiana, Mississippi,and Memphis. It is almost at the crest. I think this story is heart-breaking because it's no ones fault. But the people of their hometowns are going to have to evacuate,or already did. They're going to lose not only their house but ALL of their belongings and memories. Imagine having to move out of your house because of a flood? I'd be furious but also extremely sad moving out of "home".It's very sad.
