BATON ROUGE - While officials continue to monitor levees along the Mississippi, the Army Corps said Friday, it has deactivated its Phase II flood inspections.

Water levels have dropped enough to warrant a downgrade, but monitoring will continue. Currently, the Corps said it maintains a Phase I observation level.

Phase I consists of local levee authorities watch levees. Inspections continue twice weekly until the river falls about three-and-a-half more feet.
