Louisiana Is Preparing Against A Wipe-out

Monday, May 9, 2011 - 1:39pm

In Tennessee the Mississippi River is cresting tonight at 48 feet. Just inches shy of the record, set in 1937.

Floodwaters are inundating homes and streets in low-lying areas of the city.

People living in more than 13-hundred homes have been told to evacuate so far.

The crest this evening won't mean the end of problems here, rain is expected later in the week.
