Flooded river taking aim at Mississippi Delta
RENA LARA, Miss. — Crews worked to shore up levees along the swelling Mississippi River on Wednesday as floodwaters threatened to swamp even more of the fertile Mississippi Delta.
The crest rolled south after hitting the high mark Tuesday in Memphis, Tenn., just inches short of the record set in 1937. Some low-lying neighborhoods were inundated, but high levees protected much of the rest of the city. Landmarks such as Graceland stayed dry.
