High Water in Hurricane Season

High Water in Hurricane Season

The "Sealand Illinois," a Hong Kong registered cargo ship, passes under the Crescent City Connection Bridge on the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019. The river that drains much of the flood-soaked United States is running far higher than normal this hurricane season, menacing New Orleans in multiple ways. One continuing concern: the massive volume of water that for months has been pushing against the levees that hold it back from a city that's mostly below sea level. The situation also holds the potential of a nasty collision between surging ocean water from the Gulf of Mexico and a major river already stacked high with water. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
