Watch Morganza Opening Live

Army Corps of Engineers has set up a Ustream channel to watch opening of the Morganza Control Structure when they actually go forward with the decision. Anyone who watched the opening of the Bonnet Carre can tell you it’s not exactly the most compelling video in the world. If you live downstream, this is probably horrifying, depressing or both. From a dramatic perspective, a camera set up in Butte La Rose would probably be better. And it would be more interesting for historians and possibly the people about to lose their stuff. Of course, that’s assuming there aren’t one or two folks who decided to stay behind and last it out somehow. (Here’s a link if the embed goes out. It’s going to be dark until they actually do open it)
