Levee Watch 2011

Watching the levee water rise is a hot topic around here. This is the levee to Lake Ferguson. The Mississippi River spills into this lake.

The approach onto the levee...

The flooded Yacht Club...

Down to only four parking rows. There are many more rows that are submerged.
Submerged picnic area...

Notice the lamp posts.

There are two floating casinos located in this area. They will be closed soon for safety reasons - even though they won't flood (they float). The levee will close to the public Saturday night. The fear is that the water will keep rising and spill over the levee (see first picture) and into town or worse - that the levee will break.
