A drive south to Port Gibson and the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant shows the flood waters on June 9, 2019. The Mississippi River is at 50 feet and is projected to rise to 51 feet by Thursday, but the crest and crest date are, for lack of a better word, fluid.

 

Letourneau Road is underwater.

Two horses by what seems to be a lake. It is actually a farmers field that is underwater.

The flood waters have been sitting long enough to produce a thick coat of algae.

The road from Port Gibson to the Windsor Ruins is underwater.

The Grand Gulf cooling tower from a bluff above Bayou Pierre.

Bayou Pierre is normally a small stream. The flood makes it visible from the top of the bluffs.
