Water: lack of and flooding

Here we're doing all we can to prevent fires in nature and to fight them where the occur.
After weeks without rain and extremely high temperatures everything is very dry and there are areas where farmers are not allowed to use water out of the ground. Now they fear their crops are lost.

At the other side of the world, however, the Mississippi is at the highest level since 1927 and lots of people are evacuated due to flooding.
In 1927 the level of 14,84 was reached and hundreds of people died.

Tomorrow the highest level of the Mississippi will be reached, and it's feared that the high levels also will affect the river delta. Causing more flooding.

Already almost a week ago President Obama has been asked to declare 11 counties along the Mississippi as desaster areas.
The official site of the Mississippi Government doesn't state if the President did in fact do so.

Peope think they're the major force on earth, but it's only a wish. The true force is nature, and we have to deal with that the best we can.
