Louisiana Governor Jindal stated today at a press conference in Baton Rouge that there is an extreme likelihood  that the  Morganza spillway could be open by Saturday.  If not, he expects it to be opened Sunday.
 

 

Jindal also said at various times during the press conference that it is "now time to review your plans", "to take action" and "to follow guidance from local  leaders" 

Jindal said the water was not going to come at once and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is not expecting a breach.
