Flood Crest Reaches Vicksburg

Detailed Description

This is the Mississippi River at Vicksburg, Mississippi, as the crest from the earlier flooding moves through.

In late 2015/early 2016 unusually large rainfall in the Upper Mississippi River Valley led to significant flooding in Arkansas, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. USGS crews responded to the flooding by collecting streamflow and water quality information and providing it to emergency responders.
