Mississippi River Flooding

The Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee, fed by torrential rains, may reach flood stage tonight, threatening the worst flooding since 1927. Still, today’s levees are higher and stronger than they were then, so the havoc it wreaks may not be as devastating as in the past. Also, only light rain is predicted over the next few days. GR

Here are some updates on the flooding downstream in Mississippi and Louisiana. (Updated on 5/13)

The Mississippi River is flooding Mississippi State, inundating homes and devastating crops.

More reporting on the worst flooding by the Mississippi River in 75 years. The losses in human, agricultural, and monetary terms are huge, and the floodwaters are bearing down on New Orleans and much of the rest of Louisiana.
