Some domestic ‘spolodie:
Last night, the Corps of Engineers set off a chain of charges on a levee retaining the Mississippi River at Bird’s Point, Missouri. This activated long standing flood control measures which allow waters to flow down a “flood way” towards the town of New Madrid, Missouri. Sort of a “give the river more room and it won’t flood as bad” technique.
Word is houses some twenty to twenty-five miles away, including Hickman, Kentucky, were rattled by the blast.
