The Army Corps of Engineers says the Mississippi River is falling at New Orleans and the Corps has begun closing a historic flood control structure that diverts the river's water into a brackish lake. Corps spokesman Matt Roe says the process could take 10 days to two weeks if the weather is good. The Bonnet Carre Spillway is opened to relieve stress on levees when the river is flowing at 1.25 million cubic feet per second. That's fast enough to fill the Superdome in less than two minutes.
