14 May 11 - Army engineers prepared today to open the gates to an emergency spillway along the still-rising Mississippi River.
 
Though this would divert floodwaters from Baton Rouge and New Orleans, it could submerge about 3,000 square miles (7,770 sq km) under as much as 25 feet (7.5 meters) of water - higher that the roof tops! - in some areas, leaving about 25,000 people and 11,000 structures in harm's way.
 
Engineers fear that if they fail to take this action, a levee failure could swamp New Orleans, Baton Rouge and many oil refineries and chemical plants under as much as 20 feet (six meters) of water - a disaster much worse than Hurricane Katrina.
 
.."Now's the time to evacuate," said Governor Jindal. "Now's the time for our people to execute their plans. That water's coming."

Three thousand square miles! That's a third of the size of the entire state of Vermont ... covered with water higher than the roof tops.
