Pearl River Flood Emergency

JACKSON – The National Weather Service is predicting the Pearl River at Jackson to crest at 38 feet by Sunday.

At that height, homes and businesses in the Byram, Flowood, Jackson, and north Richland areas will be affected by floodwaters. This would also be the third-highest crest in recorded history.

In the link below, you can find an interactive inundation map to see where the waters from this flood could reach.
