The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has revised its flood level projections for the Mississippi, indicating that the Memphis area could see a near- record breaking level of 48 feet by May 10.
This revised chart was published by NOAA at 3:55 CDT today (May 2).
River stage is expected at 46.5 feet by Saturday, and 48.0 feet by May 10. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF, FOLKS!
