Pointe Coupee Farmers Closely Watch Mississippi River
In the coming days the area could flood.
There's been more rainfall than usual this year. Farmers in the Morganza/Forebay area believe it's only a matter of days before the Mississippi spills over the levee.
Flooding in the spring already ruined 16 thousand acres and this year's crops. Farmers say if the river tops the levee again, they can kiss their 2010 crop goodbye.
