The Mississippi river, not the state is flooding again

The Mississippi river, is swollen by recent flooding is now threatening to destroy cotton, rice and corn fields and swamp houses in a flood said to be of major proportions. The flood waters peaked just before daybreak at Memphis, Tennessee and are now heading for one of the most poverty stricken parts of the USA.

The water is just inches short of the record level of 1937. Officials are checking and reinforcing flood defenses and farmers have built homemade levees to protect their crops of corn, wheat, cotton and soy beans, but believe that all the crops will be destroyed.

When the Mississippi crested in Memphis, it was nearly forty eight feet high, only just short of its all time record of forty eight point seven feet high. President Barack Obama has declared Shelby County and other areas as disaster zones, which makes them eligible for federal aid.
