June 10 (Bloomberg) -- Reporter Peter Heller narrates a slideshow of photographs that chronicle flooding and flood-control efforts along the Mississippi and Atchafalaya rivers in Louisiana. In May, Mississippi water levels rose to unprecedented heights. The Army Corps of Engineers released water from the lower part of the river through a series of flood gates called the Morganza Control Structure to prevent the inundation of New Orleans and Baton Rouge. The torrent raised water levels in Louisiana's Atchafalaya River basin by more than 20 feet. (Photos by Franco Pagetti for Bloomberg Businessweek and by Getty Images. Source: Bloomberg)
