Storms could cause flooding overnight in Central Mississippi

News

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – With the possibility of severe weather Friday night, there could be a chance for flooding in the Jackson-metro area.

People who live on Choctaw Road close to Meadowbrook Road in Jackson are not strangers to flooding. Two weeks ago on April 10, severe weather caused flooding in their neighborhood.

The flooding was so severe that the Jackson Fire Department was called in on a rescue mission, but Annie Callahan chose not to evacuate. But, with another round of severe weather expected, She says she’ll make a different decision this time. 

In 2005, Callahan was diagnosed with cancer. She’s lived at this home on Choctaw Road for about a year, but plans to move by the end of the summer because of mold produced by the flood waters. Which isn’t good for her health. 

A flash flood watch will be in effect until 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, in Central Mississippi.
