Will the backwater levee hold to keep Eagle Lake from flooding?

So far, the answer is yes.  The US Army Corp of Engineers released an informative video showing what would happen if the backwater levee were to fail.  If you are looking at the map in the video, that horseshoe area at the bottom left is Eagle Lake.  Even without a levee failure, overtopping is expected for a few days.  Unless you have a death wish, stay away from the levee and out of the water.  It is impossible to describe the tremendous force of mother nature and the big muddy.
