Does anybody reading this live near a levee?

You might want to find out what condition it's in.

From First Draft:
The Army Corps of Engineers has identified 146 levees in the US that "pose an unacceptable risk of failing in a major flood."

But they aren't going to tell you which 146:
Spokesman Pete Pierce says the corps does not want to release the list of the 146 places where levees have been identified as inadequate until all levees are inspected and all communities with faulty levees are notified. USA TODAY has filed a request for that list under the Freedom of Information Act.
I'd suggest getting one of those inflatable raft things....
