MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Reservoir officials have closed access to the Madison County side of the Spillway at 11 a.m. and they say it will be closed until further notice.

Rice Road in Ridgeland is completely submerged in flood waters after late night torrential rains swept through Mississippi. The road was shut down, but several cars were still trying to pass through the dangerous waters. 

Floodwater quickly consumed Terry's Cabins behind Shuckers Oyster Bar on Rice Road. Some Residents were caught off guard in the middle of the night and were evacuated by boat starting at 3:00 Monday morning. Most lost all their possessions.

This is near Shuckers and the Reservoir. 

In Canton, Cameron Street and others in that neighborhood took on floodwater. Some elderly residents were trapped as the rising water quickly flooded their homes. Officials say this is due to longstanding infrastructure problems.
