Breaking: Braithwaite Levee Breech imminent

WGNO reporting.
Water is seeping through the bottom of the Caernavon Diversion Levee. If you are in a home, please go to high ground immediately!

Sandbagging efforts to fortify the levee are being undertaken, but officials say the levee “is about to give.” Some 200 homes are at risk.
Here is the video feed.

This seems like it is turning out to be much like Katrina, when it at first we thought we had dodged a bullet, and then all of a sudden it seemed like all heck broke loose. The stress on the flood control systems has taken a toll. Time will tell how successful it has been.
