Levee District 2 Breach

Water from the River aux Vases, backed up near where the river meets the old Mississippi River channel, ran into the Big Field on Sunday after the levee [pictured above] that is part of the Levee District 2 complex broke over the weekend. The levee district also intentionally breached its levee based on predictions of a 46-foot crest this coming weekend. (Photo by TOBY CARRIG/Herald staff)
