According to a tweet from Congressman Garret Graves, the Army Corps of Engineers the Morganza Spillway will NOT be opening as it was planned to do so on Sunday.

This comes days after the original scheduled opening was pushed back because the Mississippi River wasn’t rising as quickly as it was predicted to do.

This is a developing story.

We’ll provide details as they are made available.
