    Go here

    http://rivergages.mvr.usace.army.mil...new/layout.cfm

    Click on "Choose an option" scroll down to "stream" and in "Chose a stream" select "Mississippi River"

    The River is at or above flood stage downstream of Commerce Missouri. Most of the stations(as of 10:30 p.m. central time) downstream of Memphis have risen over 0.5' over the past 24 hours. Lots of snow and rain this winter we shall see.

    I've gone into intense stretching and cardiovascular training in anticipation of this thread. Looking into PEDs now.

    1.5 million cfs at the spillway is the magic number which is the current flow rate at Vicksburg Mississippi.

    http://www.nola.com/environment/inde...onnet_car.html

    Old river hydropower plant is sucking out 253000 cfs.

    Summary of Revised Standing instructions to operate the Morganza Spillway. I think these were adopted in 2014.


    http://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/Portal...ifiedFINAL.pdf

    Basically they open the spillway when the downstream flow rate is 1.5 million CFS AND the elevation of the water on the River side of the structure is 57.0 feet NAVD88.
