Flooding Crests In Vicksburg

A levee protects a home surrounded by floodwater from the Yazoo River near Vicksburg, Mississippi on May 18, 2011.

The flooding Mississippi River has crested lower than expected in Vicksburg, Miss., but the Army Corps of Engineers warns it will be days before the surging waters recede, according to AP. Now the water is surging downstream to the Gulf of Mexico. Note: We incorrectly described the sites that worry environmental activist group, the Louisiana Bucket Brigade. The group says there's one oil refinery in the projected flood zone and no chemical plants. But the group says there are thousands of oil and gas wells and abandoned oil waste pits that need to be guarded. NPR's Jeff Brady tells NPR Newscasts the state of Louisiana says oil companies must install automatic cutoffs for wells that might be inaccessible during a flood.

"It's God's work. You've got to deal with him. You can run to high ground, but if God wants to come there, he can come there. You might as well stay put."
The Mississippi River crested at more than 14 feet above flood stage in Vicksburg on Thursday, slightly lower than expected, easing worries about water potentially spilling over a nearby levee and inundating thousands more acres of farmland.

A farmhouse is protected by a small levee while another stands flooded near Yazoo City, Miss., Thursday, May 19, 2011. For thousands of people forced from their homes by the rising Mississippi River, life has become a tedious waiting game: waiting for meals at shelters, waiting for the latest word on their flooded homes, waiting for the river to fall.

Floodway opening a blessing for Louisiana refineries
Sun May 15, 2011 9:04pm GMT * Alon workers building levee at 80,000 bpd refinery * Spillway opening reduces flooding risk for 8 refineries * Threat remains to shipping, distribution By Kristen Hays KROTZ SPRINGS, La., May 15 (Reuters) - The opening of a key spillway to relieve flooding along the Mississippi River could create logistical headaches for big Gulf Coast refiners, but will likely spare the lion's share of the area's refining capacity from flooding danger. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Saturday opened the Morganza Spillway to channel water away from the Mississippi River and into the Atchafalaya River basin. That will take the floodwaters toward homes, farms, a wildlife refuge and a small oil refinery but avoid inundating New Orleans and Louisiana's capital Baton Rouge.

The opening of the Morganza Spillway on Saturday will inevitably impact Alon USA Energy's (ALJ.N: Quote) 80,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Krotz Springs, which expects to be surrounded by water within 14 days. Refinery workers scrambled over the weekend to bolster levees around the nearby Atchafalaya River. The spillway's opening brings relief to the eight large refineries that are nestled along the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and Meraux, Louisiana, which collectively process 12 percent of U.S. refined products. "That's really what you're trying to do -- save all those refineries," said Jeffrey Goetz, managing director of Poten & Partners. Rather than the prospect of swamped refineries and months of ceased operations as was seen during hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, Louisiana's refineries face the tricky logistical task of moving barges filled with gasoline and other refined products along the swollen Mississippi River. "Assuming the levees hold, this risk of flooding is low," said Andrew Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC in Houston. "The reality is we really have a logistics and distribution issue." But all bets are off if swelling river levels burst through the levees that protect New Orleans and other cities, he said. Exxon Mobil's (XOM.N: Quote) 504,500 barrel per day refinery in Baton Rouge, the nation's second-largest, expects to remain in operation but its Mississippi River dock was shut due to high water, a plant spokesman said. High waters along the Mississippi River will complicate an already tricky task of shuttling barges and ships filled with refined products, especially if the Coast Guard is forced to shut portions of the key transportation route due to high water. U.S. Coast Guard officials have said they might have to halt shipping on the river if it rises above 18 feet at New Orleans. "Opening the spillway maintains the flood stage in New Orleans at 17 feet, which allows tankers to continue delivering crude to the refineries so they can continue processing crude and turning it into products," Lipow said.

Pakistan flood forecast was known at least 10 days ahead but news was withheld from residents by European agency and Pakistan itself-BBC

The study said this could have allowed the authorities in northern Pakistan to take preventative measures.

The monsoon floods affected 20 million people and one fifth of the country.

At least 1,500 people died in the deluge. The American Geophysical Union said the information

did not reach Pakistan because of a "lack of cooperation between the forecasting centre and Pakistan".

Pakistan's own weather agency also did not forecast the floods, the organisation added. "This disaster could have been minimised and even the flooding could have been minimised," said Peter Webster, a professor of earth and atmospheric science at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and lead writer of the study. "If we were working with Pakistan, they would have known eight to 10 days in advance that the floods were coming." The study, which used data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF), found that the floods could have been predicted if the data had "been processed and fed into a hydrological model,

Illegal Logging by Pakistan's Timber Mafia Increased Flooding Devastation
by Matthew McDermott, New York, NY on 08.18.10

Forget for the moment about to what degree climate change has influenced the flooding in Pakistan. A new article inChina Dialogue brings to light a new angle on one very aggravating factor on the overwhelming devastation: Illegal logging by the 'timber mafia' has increased erosion, landslides, and even sent felled trees floating down rivers damaging bridges and dams. The original article goes through the timber mafia connection with the Taliban--illegal logging is worth billions of rupees and the mafia has actively helped the Taliban--and how the latter as well as counterattacks by the Pakistani army has put the people in the Swat region into a precarious situation. But here's the connection between illegal logging and the flooding:

In the way that horror tends to pile on horror in Pakistan, not only has the flooding been intense in areas where the timber mafia is active but the felled trees, hidden in ravines prior to smuggling them onwards, have caused havoc. Dislodged by torrents of water, they have swept away bridges and people and anything else in their path.

There has been some suggestion that the high volume of timber transported along the rivers has been a factor in the weakening of the dams and retaining walls that are supposed to protect the land from flooding but have proved unequal to the task. Their failure to function has also brought up comparisons to the poor construction that resulted in collapsed government schools during the 2005 earthquake; then, blame landed on corrupt practices and lack of oversight by the authorities in the allocation of construction contracts. Read the full article (linked at top) for more detail--good stuff throughout--but just take it all as one more example of why fighting corruption and organized crime is intimately tied with creating a more socially and ecological sustainable society.

'All started suddenly and thousands died, millions displaced, hundreds of villages vanished in the matter of just 4 days!!…strangely there were no weather warnings, no alarms.. these are the worst floods in the history of Pakistan BUT no one from Global MET offices could even trace what is going on in this region? We have investigated this matter and concluded that HAARP has recently been used in NW area of Pakistan .. the choice of starting point was perfect.. all the flood is going in downstream i.e. Khyber (Hills) to Karachi (Sea)… it is designed to submerge entire Pakistan and bring up the worst crises and chaos ever happened.. they know they cant win a war with Nuclear armed Pakistan – it would be a mutual destruction, so they have other ways to do it!.'

The above image was taken on August 15, 2010, while the one below was snapped one year ago. The blue patches show the extend of the flooding, which have left 20 million people homeless The extend of the flooding is particularly obvious in these images, taken on August 14, 2009 and August 15, 2010 which show visible swelling of the Indus and Jhelum Rivers. This weekend United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon described the flooding as the worst disaster he had seen. And the international response to the Pakistan floods has been ‘absolutely pitiful’, Nick Clegg has claimed.

“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.” – Quote from a TV-documentary on HAARP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Read full report HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a little-known, yet critically important U.S. military defense program which has generated quite a bit of controversy over the years in certain circles. Though denied by HAARP officials, some respected researchers allege that secret electromagnetic warfare capabilities of HAARP are designed to forward the US military’s stated goal of achieving full-spectrum dominance by the year 2020. Others go so far as to claim that HAARP can and has been used for weather modification, to cause earthquakes and tsunamis, to disrupt global communications systems, and more.

Top US Senator Assassinated As Obama “Weather War” Plunges World Into Chaos
Posted on Pakalert on August 21, 2010 // 25 Comments

A new report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by Russia’s foreign military intelligence directorate (GRU) states that a former top United States Senator, Ted Stevens, was assassinated this week after he attempted to gather evidence “proving” that President Obama has unleashed America’s devastating “weather weapons” against the World. As we had previously reported on in our reports titled “PakistanFlood:HAARPUsedinPakistan?” and “Russia Burns, China Drowns: US To Blame?” Russian research scientist Dr. Andrey Areshev has joined the ranks of International scientists and experts stating their belief that the extreme weather chaos currently battering our Planet is being caused by the Tesla technology based weapons systems directed from Alaska’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, otherwise known as HAARP.
