Pearl River Flooding Displaces State Park Campers

WJTV - Jackson,MS,USA
The Pearl River has overflowed its banks. The flood stage is 28 feet.

Campers have moved out of LeFleur's Bluff State Park, where flood waters have taken over some of the woods and roadways.

"We're looking at rain again the first part of next week. So depends on how much the river has a chance to drop before we start getting additional rain in the Jackson area," said Hinds County Emergency Management Director Larry Fisher.

As Bruce Taylor closes his motor home's door and walks out, he's reminded off his new surroundings.

"It's pretty bad. It's an inconvenience to us," said Taylor.

Taylor's motor home is just one of the 15 campers that calls the LeFleur's Bluff State Park home. One camper had so much water damage, the owner was forced to leave it in the murky water. Majority of the people left in time, and some have relocated to a parking lot temporarily.
