Remember last summer when they had to restrict barge traffic because the river was so low due to the drought. Good times...

Our climate is being effected? The hell you say!

And exactly where will all that water end up?? Back in the oceans and the drought cycle begins again.

There ought to be huge canals/tunnels that start drawing water toward the southwest when the Mississippi goes over flood stage. Usually when it is flooding on the Mississippi there is a drought down in Texas and New Mexico.

Your right, they should simply trench waterways to the deserts of the southwest, right through the Rocky Mountains... That would only cost a few trillion dollars...

Cachement dams along the Mississippi would be a far better idea....especially since farms and cities are draining the aquafirs out there that used to make the great plains bloom....

There is a good idea. Use the canals/tunnels to run the flood waters to areas that will recharge the aquafiers.

Don't know if that is global or if its not Mitch McConnel back in his home state peeing out that keg of beer after finding out he had a serious challenger for his seat.

There are so many natural disasters occurring in so many parts of the country that I can no longer afford to make donations to help my fellow Americans.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My advice to the leaders in Washington is to cut spending to other programs (military preferred) in order to help our neighbors pick up the pieces after a natural disaster.

These disasters are going to be more frequent and severe than we have ever seen before. The time has come to invest in the USA and let other countries fend for themselves.

When are we going to see some of our Nation's academic institutions, such as Howard Hughes school of Engineering, leaning into the task of designing and helping construct new reservoirs? If they work together with, say, the Army Corps of Engineers, and affected states such as Mississippi, Louisiana, and other, maybe they can organize sufficient human, material, and monetary resources as might be necessary to build large spill-off reservoirs and canals to move water to/from the watercourse, as needed. Romans were doing this stuff 'back in the day' 1/2 a world away, while wolves and buffalo still ruled the wilds here in America...how much have we really learned?

Not enough apparently. We think we're omnipotent, but we aren't. Only Mom Nature is.

You might be underestimating the volume of water involved. The Mississippi is over 1 mile wide, there is flooding on maybe 3-500 miles of the river at an average of probably 10 or so feet. Additionally you have a network of tributaries and creeks that are flooding which would probably double the flooding on the Mississippi. It would be next to impossible to find enough suitable land to hold that volume of water. We have flooding around here. When it floods some areas 20 miles from the river are also flooded. In some areas you can drive 20 miles on elevated roads and there is flooding on either side of the road 10 feet deep.

Make sure all the buildings and homes are on elevators.. that rise above the flooding.. oh and get a chiti chiti bang bang car that floats when you can't drive. And learn to swim. Flooding happens. Its nature.
03:42 AM on 06/05/2013
Based on your worse case scenario of 500 miles and 10 feet in flooding, that is enough water to fill a channel over 17,000 miles long, 30 feet deep and 50 feet wide.
Enough waters to fill canals covering from north to south, east to west the states of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Arkansas, North and South Dakota combined which would provide water to alleviate the pressure on the Ogallala Aquifer.

Back in March, the river was so low that barge traffic had to be restricted. Now, it's flooding. Are we moving from one extreme to another, like the climate change folks predicted?

It's called living in the path of raw nature. And she is none to accomadating to humans. Get in her way and well .. things happen. Most of them not good.

GOP or not, they are my neighbors and I do care about them. You should too!

If there is ever a time to put personal feelings aside and do the right thing it's when our neighbors are hurting.

This mentality is what will help America see that political party does not matter in the least. What matters is that we lend a helping hand whenever there is a need!

It's times like these that we need to join together.

That's nice and all, but that's just your opinion. And frankly if you're one of those peace niks, I doubt most Republicans would care what happened to you in return, that is unless you're secretly rich or something....
