2011 Spring Flood

Detailed Description

A camp lies flooded on the edge of the Florida Gas Canal. Rising floodwaters during the 2011 flood have inundated many hunting camps and residences. Flooded even before the additional water from the Morganza Spillway arrived, these camps were built on land that is usually well above the water level and safely back from the canal's edge.

Location: Florida Gas Canal, East Side of the Atchafalaya Basin, Louisiana
