The Mississippi River crest Monday At Memphis?

Forecasters say the Mississippi River could crest late Monday at Memphis, Tennessee.

Mayor AC Wharton said that despite the tightened timeframe, he’s confident that precautions such as door-to-door warnings have prepared the city.

Some area in Memphis are already flooded and lots of people had already moved to safer places.

Is it true that the levee along the Mississippi River made the flooding even worse?

I am very sad to see so many people lost their houses and farmlands in the floods, storms and tornadoes.
