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.

other sizes: small medium original auto

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
