Queen of the Mississippi First Visit For 2018

It was so nice to see the Queen of the Mississippi making her first trip to our historic civil war city today with her passengers.  She was here for a full day and moored at the end of the floodwall near the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.  

I stepped behind the flood wall and could see a lot of debris from the flooding.

Where I'm standing, a week and a half ago this was underwater.

The entrance/exits are still closed with the prediction of the MS River rising again mid-April.

You can see the Queen of the Mississippi high over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.  Glad to see her return bringing passengers to our town for touring the Vicksburg National Military ParkOld Court House Museum and other historical attractions in Vicksburg.

River Level: 45.05 feet - Change: -1.08 foot - Flood Stage: 43 feet
