Local News

Good news for flooded areas in the Delta. The Mississippi River is finally below flood stage at Vicksburg. 

On Monday morning, the river gauge at Vicksburg observed a river level of 42.5 feet.

The lower level will help the flooded backwater to continue to drain into the Mississippi River.

This is the first time the river has been below flood stage at the Vicksburg site since February.
