Repairing the Levees

Repairing the Levees

Amid the ongoing rescue and recovery efforts in flooded New Orleans, authorities are trying to figure out how to stop breaches in the levees. On Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers said "it is hoping to begin dumping bags weighing as much as 15,000 pounds to stem the flow of water," seeping through three breaches CNN(1) reported. According to MSNBC (2), federal engineers have made plans to "intentionally breach other levees in the city to drain some of the floodwaters."
