Many parts of the Midwest are expected to experience some of the coldest temperatures in two decades brought by the Arctic blast.

Mississippi River Flooding – Louisiana And Mississippi Underwater In Pictures

After 3 days, the water from the flooded Mississippi River has reached places like Butte LaRose and St. Landry Parish at the northern end of the basin, putting some houses underwater.

Towns and crop lands along the Atchafalaya River basin that are in the path of the diverted flood waters could be flooded as high as 20 feet in coming days.

On Tuesday, the Coast Guard closed a 15-mile stretch of the Mississippi River at Natchez, Mississippi, north of New Orleans.

Vessels were blocked from heading toward the Gulf of Mexico and from returning north after dropping off their freight.

These barges carry corn, wheat, soybean and others from the Midwest to ports near New Orleans, where they get loaded onto huge grain carriers to be exported around the world.

 Below are photos of the flooding along the Mississippi River.

Deadly Ice and Snow Storm Cut Swath Across US

29 01 2009

There is a very bad ice and snow storm across the United States.

At least 17 people died in the Midwest.

Trees fell on power lines so there is no electricity in lots and lots and lots of houses.

Some school are closed because it is dark and too much snow so people cannot go out side.

There are lots of accident because the roads are too slippery.

Winter StormIt is hard to walk out side because it is icy and too slippery.

Anyway the ice on the trees look so beautiful.

CHICAGO (AFP) – Hundreds of thousands of people were left shivering in the dark after a massive ice and snow storm cut a swath across the United States Wednesday, knocking down power lines, snarling traffic, grounding flights and forcing schools to close.

Freezing rain on the southern end of the storm covered trees and bridges with brilliant ice crystals but made roads incredibly slick and dangerous from Texas to Pennsylvania.

At least a dozen deaths were reported.

The northern side of the snow dumped as much as a foot (30 centimeters) of snow in some areas of Ohio and the US east coast.

And with a cold front moving in behind the storm it could be days before the ice melts and weeks before all the damage is repaired, officials warned.
