BREAKING: Miss. River Flooding Forces Thousands in Iowa, Illinois & Missouri To Evacuate
How many homes will be lost? How many cities will be flooded? How many lives will be turned upside-down, inside-out? Questions with no clear-cut answers.
According to CNN, levees along the Mississippi River were being topped with sandbags Tuesday, but it wasn't enough in some places as the swollen river continued to rise. Hogs struggle to breathe in a hog house Monday in Oakville, Iowa.
"We're working hard with communities to get the levees up and are very concerned that the water will go over top of them," said Ron Fournier, a spokesman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
A levee gave way early Tuesday near Lomax, Illinois, flooding thousands of acres of farmland and the village of Gulfport, said Deputy Donnie Seitz of the Hancock County Sheriff's Department.
President Bush will be visiting the area on Thursday. "I want to thank the people at the local level for loving their neighbors as they would like to be loved themselves," Bush said during a Cabinet meeting Tuesday.
On Monday, the Corps' Fournier said water could spill over about two dozen levees along the Mississippi River in Iowa, Missouri and Illinois this week unless people topped them with enough sandbags.
