If it was close yo where the breached the levee, yes it is possible. Would like to see more photos though, especially from local/regional/national news reports. Farm some river bottom ground and have seen a lot of sand wash into the fields or settle out where the water pools.

At first I thought that was silt that washed in.....but really is the dirt eroded away. I believe it is real. Here is a link to the Southeast Missourian photo gallery...

Re: Does This Flood Damage Look Real?

The fields around here have cracks but from drought.   The drought is breaking in places and the hail has come.  There are places finally getting rain.  Saturday there were storms that took wheat ready to harvest and beat it so hard that when the 6 inches of rain came you can't tell there was ever wheat planted.  Corn 3 ft tall is completely gone with last years residue. 

 

Those pictures were from a friend.  They just don't look real.  What would you do?  It is hard to belive they would ever need a pivot.

If you check out the link, it has some really good pictures. Even some with pivots in them. And some that look like those you posted.

 

We need rain here soon, and some heat. Corn is green but not that good green color it should have. Have not had a good rain since we got 1.5 inches on 5/20.

Re: Does This Flood Damage Look Real?

I wonder if one of the reasons it doesn't look real is because of how much we have been taught that canyons are formed over millions of years in support of evolution.

 

In reality, it is apparent that deep erosion occurs often in a matter of days or weeks.  (Imagine the effects of a global flood.)

Just imagine all the water needed to flood the whole globe!
