Governor's lake house under water

YAZOO COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Governor Haley Barbour's lake house in Yazoo County is the latest structure to fall victim to the Great Flood of 2011.

The house is on Wolf Lake, an oxbow lake of the Yazoo River. The Yazoo River is flooding because it flows into the Mississippi River.

The governor had tried to fight the floodwaters with sandbags, but the water was up to the second floor by Wednesday. Numerous other homes in the area are also under water.
