The Army Corps of Engineers says it is monitoring levees on the Mississippi River because of unusually high waters for this time of the year.

The corps monitors the levees once the river level reaches 11 feet and is expected to continue rising.

The National Weather Service expects the river to crest at 14.5 feet in New Orleans on February 12.

At this point, though, the corps does not expect to open the Bonnet Carre Spillway to relieve the river.
