NATCHEZ, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Great Flood of 2011 continues to ravage parts of the south.

The Mighty Mississippi River is still at record levels across the region.

The river pulled a surprise by cresting in another location Friday.

The river at Natchez crested a day earlier than expected at 61.8 feet. That is lower than first predicted, but about three feet higher than the record set in 1937.
