The Army Corps of Engineers has delayed the opening of the Morganza Flood Control Structure for a second time.
The Corps was originally set to begin opening the structure on Sunday, June 2nd, but later postponed until Thursday, June 6th. Now the Corps is aiming for Sunday, June 9th.
Officials say changing river forecasts are responsible for both delays. The river is not expected to reach the trigger point for operation until a few days later.
