Default Creeping Ever Closer

The Mississippi is now above 54 feet at Natchez and completely across Silver Street at its lowest point down under the hill. The casino is closed and only authorized vehicles and pedestrians are permitted to go down the hill. For up to the minute coverage, including panoramic videos of the sandbagging operations on Silver Street, click on Mississippi's Best Community Newspaper | The Natchez Democrat.

Maria Greer reports this morning that her family is busy moving out of their home in Vidalia and that those who live in the Deer Park area (where the MAMIE is located) have all moved out of their houses and the road is inacessible. My thoughts and prayers are with them and everyone else affected by this flood.

On a happier note, the Ohio here at Louisville is falling and is at 17 feet today, well below the 23 foot flood stage. Hallelujah!
