200-year-old home in Warren Co. being flooded

Posted: Updated:
WARREN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Flood water from the Mississippi River is covering several feet of a 200-year-old home in Warren County.

Skycopter 3 got a bird's eye view of the home owned by 90-year-old Melba Parker.

It sits on the river side of the levee near Chotard Lake and survived the 1927 flood. We introduced you to Mrs. Parker two weeks ago. Her son was moving her out of the house before the rising water seeped in.

So far Lou pPrker's raised home on the same property has not been damaged.
