Last Friday when I came to the waterfront the city employees were opening up the Exit because the water had receded from the flooding. Today, when I went to the waterfront both the Entrance/Exits, were opened and I was able to take pictures of both riverboats, America and the American Queen, while their passengers toured our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.
America and the American Queen.
It's great to see the flood waters receding from the Yazoo Diversion Canal so we can walk at the waterfront.
The Mississippi River is on the rise again but should hold steady at 43 feet by April 16th.
Riverboat, the Grand American Queen.
The American Queen is moored directly across from the Catfish Row at Children's Art Park. She is riding high over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall.
River Level: 42.21 feet - Change: +0.07 foot - Flood Stage: 43 feet
