Yazoo River expected to spill over

YAZOO CITY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Governor Haley Barbour is warning residents in low-lying areas to prepare for the worst from the Mississippi River.

Barbour grew up in Yazoo City, which sits on the last of the elevated ridges just before the south Mississippi Delta flattens out into croplands.

The Yazoo River is expected to spill over soon.

WLBT's Bert Case flew over Yazoo to assess the water levels.
