Sartartia Road bridge over Yazoo River closed

Posted: Updated:

The Army Corps of Engineers with the help of Satartia residents are building up the levee at the Satartia bridge.

The bridge over the Yazoo River was closed yesterday cutting off access to Satartia Road which now sits under water.

Many residents have evacuated and moved to higher ground.

Residents on the east side of the levee should be protected from the rising water.
