[kl-bogel] Catastrophic flooding Mississippi

The water level in the Mississippi and its tributaries continues to grow. He has already reached its record high, and the worst may be yet to come. Part of the states of Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas is under water, but that's not all the troubles, which are expected in the near future. River pressure on the dam has forced the U.S. Army Corps plot to blow up a dam near the town of Keire, Illinois, to save the city from flooding, but because of this eventually became flooded about 52 thousand hectares of farmland. Soon the river flows reach the Mississippi Delta, and this will lead to more flooding thousands of hectares of fertile land. (33 photos)
