More businesses and residents are fleeing approaching floodwaters that continue to creep closer to the city of Vicksburg.
The road to the Le Tourneau plant is now covered with a steady stream from the rising Mississippi river.
Employees at the oil rig construction plant now have to take boats to their jobs.
Just to the north on Hartley road, residents prepared for the flood by jacking up their trailers.
It may not be enough to protect their homes.
Some could only go as high as a foot below the projected flood crest.
Mark Lockwood says, "My neighbors are gone, they're all fleeing, jacking up their houses, moving all their stuff out."
Many residents spent the day moving out personal items, not knowing if they will have anything to return to.
"My hope is the water doesn't get in, I have no flood insurance, I could lose everything."
All casinos remain open for now. The Riverwalk casino placed Hesco barriers around their building to stop the floodwaters, which are expected to come within a foot of their building.
Diamond Jacks casino, which is already taking on water, is set to close at 3 a.m. Monday.
