My daughter reports that LSU's Veterinary Medicine Staff are in the process of slow evacuation of about 200 of their horses. This is apparently purely cautionary, as the surge is not expected to crest the levee system. Horses, of course, are difficult to move, so the staff is moving them now so as to not have them to worry about should the situation become more threatening. On a related note, the current spring flood, though not a Corps of Engineers Project Design-500 year flood, is so massive that the Bonnet Carre Spillway has been opened for only the 10th time since its creation, and--even more telling--the Morganza Spillway (due to open tomorrow) has only been used once before (1973). This will certainly test the entire levee system for sure; LSU is guarding against seepage, which can be a major headache even without a levee breach. Though I write from Phoenix, AZ, I have a stake in Louisiana, with property, home, friends, a daughter and the LSU Football & Community to be concerned about. And if the SHTF, I'll be down there with y'all, sandbagging for dear life! So, keep fingers crossed, LA has had enough already, but nature could care less.
