Sadness About the Mississippi
Cedar Rapids Iowa has been flooded and Charlotte's pipes are bursting all over the city. A few evenings ago, a 54 inch water main ruptured under Providence Road and officials are so concerned that they asked the WHOLE county to conserve to not over stress the system. Two other water issues have happened in the southern part of the city and we hear that the Providence Road problem will take a few weeks because the pipe that burst is under Briar Creek and is submerged. A new one this morning broke at Tremont at South Boulevard and East Boulevard. This is a massively busy area and there will be chaos.
Our President is rushing to the Mississippi area of floods. I fear that the disaster there is only just beginning and not considering deaths, the situation will be considered as devastating as Katrina was to the Gulf Area.
