Thanks to a reader who brought the above CNN video to our attention. It features Lowell-native, Army Colonel Ed Fleming, speaking to the residents of Butte La Rose, Louisiana about the need to evacuate in the face of coming floods that will leave 15 feet of water in their town. Fleming is the commander of the Army Corps of Engineers District for New Orleans. He is the son of former mayor and city councilor Brendan Fleming.
