According to recently released reports today, residents throughout the region of the Mississippi River are on high alert and braced for the possibility of more flooding in the days ahead as a historic crest of the swollen Mississippi River rolls southward.

As reportedly cited by flood victim Tamara Jenkins of Frayser, Tennessee, who was evacuated from her house on Tuesday, “We’ve never seen anything like this, I was scared not knowing what’s going to happen or where we can go from here.”

Based on related records, an announcement was made Wednesday through a statement released by the office of Gov. Haley Barbour that fourteen Mississippi counties affected by flooding have been declared major disaster areas eligible for federal assistance.

Updates from several news sites forecast prediction that the river will crest in Natchez on May 21 at an overwhelming 64 feet.
