    Water levels along the Mississippi River have dropped prompting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District to move from phase II to phase I flood fight procedures. This flood fight began Jan. 9 when the Mississippi River rose above 11 feet at the Carrollton Gage, and on Jan. 27 phase II was initiated when the river exceeded 15 feet at the gage. Current forecasts show the river remaining above 11 feet at the Carrollton Gage throughout the next 28 days. However, the Corps will continue to monitor the river and forecasts closely and take appropriate measures if necessary.
