Rain levels around the Mississippi Valley have been 600% above normal. The Mississippi is the 3rd largest watershed in the world and drains 40% of the continental U.S. Last April tornadoes caused 305 storms and resulting high water levels have affected tanker and commerce traffic including grains, crud and petroleum products.

In this article, notice all of the Louisiana barrels per day output. Amazing
