Bridges have been knocked out. The water is now contaminated and power will not be restored for a long time. The Mississippi has not crested and the fear is that it will add to the flooding. NO will no longer be the same and as some one mentioned there will be no way to get food, water and other supplies to the ships if they are in port. It will not be "weeks" but months. So sad in so many ways. Let us pray that human lives will be spared.
