Here's what were dealing with in the Memphis area right now......
We are just east of Memphis, so thankfully, our house is fine at the moment.
But this is what the city is dealing with right now as the Mississippi River continues to rise.
The river will not crest until May 11th, and we're being to told the water could stick around after the crest for several weeks.
Comparison with 1937 Flood
Looking down Beale Street towards Riverside Drive.
This was taken from Mud Island, days before the river over ran the park.
Mud Island now.
Driving anywhere, you run into scenes like this.
Can't go any where without having to turn around and try a different route.
This is from the Arkansas side of the river near the old Memphis Bridge.
This was the area a few weeks ago.
All the farm land in this flood plain is now under water.
Levee breach north of us in Dyersburg, TN
Casinos in Tunica, MS just to the south of us are all flooded too.
Pray for all those that have been or will be affected by the flooding along the Mississippi River. All the tributaries in the area are starting to back up and homes and neighborhoods are being evacuated.
And today....... It's raining again.
There are organizations that have mobilized to help with disaster relief in the area.
Donations to Disaster Relief are so very important.
