U.S. to blow third hole in levee as floods worsen

(Reuters) – The government prepared to blow up a third section of a Mississippi River levee on Wednesday to manage flooding, as a wall of water roared down the nation’s largest river system, threatening towns and cities all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers blew up a two-mile section of the Birds Point levee Monday night, inundating about 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland in a desperate attempt to ease flooding in towns in Illinois and Kentucky.

Water levels did recede but a second, smaller section was detonated Tuesday afternoon to allow water back into the river. The third and last blast was scheduled for Wednesday evening once explosive materials reached the site, Corps spokesman Jim Pogue said.

The Corps, which is responsible for the system of locks and dams along the Mississippi River, would then turn its attention to the growing threat further south.


Satan’s long reign is finally coming to its end this side of Armageddon. His last ditch effort will prove as futile as his past tries to rule over mankind. He has found the human race more rebellious than he can manage, and more of rebels than his own self and family of demons / converts to Yahweh’s Throne of Authority. Mankind in general is non-manageable, just as they were before the great flood swept them all away except for Yahweh’s small remnant.
