MS River @ Vicksburg On The Rise

The Yazoo Diversion canal is slowly rising at the Vicksburg waterfront from the MS River.  Most of this will be underwater before long.  

The riverboat American Queen will moor here this Friday and return again on Friday, March 9th.  

Water is slowly creeping up the steps at the Vicksburg waterfront yesterday which will soon be all underwater from the canal.

Railroad tracks near the canal.  

Nice benches to sit and enjoy the view.  

I hope the new benches don't go underwater...but its possible.

In my hometown of Vicksburg, MS the MS River is expected to crest at 49.5 feet by March 24 and our city is preparing for the flood.  The river was at 36.29 feet Saturday and predicted to be at 40.9 by Wednesday.  The flood stage at Vicksburg is 43 feet.
