Record High Level Already Set In Natchez, And More On the Way

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The River Levels continue to climb, and in Natchez we've already surpassed the record high levels set in 1937. The Natchez sight as of early this morning was measured at 58.1'.

The old record level at Natchez along the Mississippi River was 58.04, however we're still expected to go up to 64.0' by the 21st of this month.

Greenville is expected to crest first, this morning measurement was 62.8'. Following that, Vicksburg is expected to crest beyond record highs by next Thursday.

Vicksburg was measured this morning at 53.6' and still climbing fast. All counties in Mississippi and Parishes of Louisiana along the Mississippi river are under the River flood warning and showing early signs of flooding.

Early morning fog has slowed down the morning commute, especially along I-20 near Vicksburg and Hwy 49 toward Hattiesburg. Warming up quickly this afternoon as sunshine will return in full 'summer' force today.
