FAIR USE NOTICE:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says this past July was the hottest ever for the U.S. since record-keeping began. http://www.todaysthv.com/news/article...

"It looks like a coastline out there," said Reynold Minsky, president of the 5th Louisiana Levee District board. "There are more beaches on the river than there are in Florida." http://www.shreveporttimes.com/articl...

The worst US drought in 50 years is making the mighty Mississippi River dry up and could curb shipping there altogether. http://www.newser.com/story/151072/mi...

The Mississippi river is drying up and some shipping companies are worried that the drought of 1988 may be repeated, a time when the river dried up so much that barge traffic came to a standstill. In 1988 the shipping industry lost $1 billion, a number that would be far higher in 2012 and could be reached in as little as three days.
