Hundreds gather in Morgan City, Louisiana for a meeting on floodwaters.
Residents are demanding to know when the Army Corps of Engineers will open the Morganza Spillway.
When it opens...it will lessen the flow on the Mississippi River and protect cities like Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
Morgan City Mayor Tim Matte says they are very prepared, but need to watch out for things they may not have anticipated.
The Army Corps of Engineers says they have already brought in sandbags in an attempt to protect the city.
