Sand boils are a natural phenomenon that can occur during  periods of high water in flatland areas in the lower Mississippi Valley. While  they can be dangerous in themselves – tractors have been known to disappear  into them – they normally are not an immediate threat to the levee system.  Col.

His remarks were  made during a presentation at the Delta Council annual meeting.
