265 Tons of Explosives Moved Upriver to Illinois Levee

SIKESTON, Mo. — Maj. Gen. Michael Walsh has given the order to move barges carrying 265 tons of explosives upriver in Kentucky from Hickman to Wickliffe, putting them in position to blow the Birds Point levee in Mississippi County, Mo. But corps officials said the general has yet to decide whether he will blow the levee and will re-evaluate the situation Sunday.

Seems like the plans to blow up the levee are going according to planned.
