Jindal discusses opening of Morganza Spillway

Thursday, May 12, 2011 - 11:00pm

Governor Bobby Jindal addressed the likelihood of the Morganza opening.

The Army Corps of Engineers said the spillway will open once the river's flow reaches 1.5 million cubic feet of water per second at Red River Landing, which is forecasted to occur on May 14.

However, the governor warned residents they should not wait until the last minute to get ready for the flood waters to flow into their neighborhood.
