Mississippi River Flood Forces Many Emergency Moves in Memphis

The flooding of the Mississippi River has reached near-record proportions, which is unfortunate for the hundreds of people forced to move out of their homes temporarily to seek shelter until the flooding subsides. It has been almost eighty years since the Mississippi has seen rising waters like this, but this is not the kind of record which anybody in Memphis is looking to celebrate any time soon. On one positive note, less than ten percent of Memphis is underwater, and many of the affected houses are properties which were already vacated prior to the swelling river waters. It could be weeks before the flooding ceases, and for the families faced with emergency relocation needs it may be much longer before they are able to return home.
