North end of Washington Street is closed with the rising water backing up from the Yazoo Diversion Canal that runs pass our town.
Grand Station Casino and Hotel continues to rise in it's cofferdam.
The MS & Yazoo Valley RR Station going deeper under water. Yesterday, was a bit of excitement when on lookers spotted a cat swimming in the water at the depot. The city tried to rescue the cat but he made a mad swimming dash to the hillside and took off over the concrete flood wall and ran down the hill.
So far so good that the temporary flood gates are still holding.
Construction site for the new Interpretive Center is taking on water.
You can see the big boat (MS River Museum on land) that will connect with the Interpretive Center (under construction) when completed. Rusty's Restaurant is on the far right. Hopefully, it want get to the restaurant but I know the boat will float!
We are heading back home through town going south on Washington Street. A lot of traffic and congestion with the Depot being the main attraction here. A print shop a block away has already printed tee-shirts with a picture of the Depot under water saying...I've Survived the Flood of 2011. The family who owns the shop are having to live there because their home at Eagle Lake is under water.
The Weather Channel was reporting the flooding at the Depot and saw the segment on TV when I got home.
