Historic flooding slams Mississippi as river continues to rise: ‘This thing isn’t over yet’. The Pearl River, which flanks the east side of Jackson and runs near downtown, rose to its third highest level in recorded history — bypassing the prior record of 36.3 feet set by floods in 1902 and 1880. As of Sunday afternoon, the river was at 36.44 feet, according to the National Weather Service. These are the Days of Noah.

MEMA reported details of flooding damage across 11 counties. The preliminary report includes more than 200 homes damaged, four injuries from vehicles hydroplaning in Grenada County and a levee breach in Leake County. Evacuations have begun in Jackson, Mississippi and neighboring towns.
Murky brown water began creeping into yards and swallowing streets late last week and is expected to affect about 2,500 structures, including 1,000 homes, said Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves.
On Saturday Reeves declared a state of emergency for the "historic" disaster, urging people to "get out while you can."
With water rising slower than initially projected, the worst is yet to come. The river is expected to crest Monday morning at 37.5 to 38 feet, according to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.
"We are not out of the woods yet. We are seeing some positive news and positive results from last 24 hours but there is more water coming into the river and into downtown Jackson," Reeves said.
More rain is on its way this week, which could increase the duration of the flood, officials said.
“The critical component is the amount of rainfall this week,” said Mike Word, Rankin County emergency management director. “We have rain coming in between Sunday and Wednesday. The water is coming. It’s just slower than they said. We don’t want the general public to lower their concern because this thing isn’t over yet.”
Reeves estimates thousands of people are impacted by flooding.
