    There is a serious threat of an epic flood in Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. They are preparing to blow the outer levee on the Missouri side,there is an inner levee which saves towns such as Charleston,Mo.,East Prairie and Sikeston,but there are alot of questions as to whether the inner levee will hold or be weakened and will the blast possible trigger a quake.And if they blow it,will the level of the river be back to where it is within 24 hrs.(it's still raining and there is snow up North)My family lives about 10-15 miles from the inner levee.
