Amazing how LITTLE information is being given to the people living RIGHT ON the levy......Army Corps of Engineers are bringing in sand bags, but no one has told us ANYTHING??? This is absolutely the worse place to live if you want news that affects you.

I agree with you they do not give a dam about the people on the community at all. We all are going off of hear-say but not knowing the real truth. Mississippi is the worst state to live in because they only looking out for themselves. I live in Mayersville,MS right next to the levee and there are little information given to the citizens at all. My father works for CORPS OF ENGINEERS and he says just to be prepared for the worse but they are not 100% sure that something will happen. They do not want people to spend all their money on moving and nothing will happen, then they will be very upset, but he is keeping us posted on the latest news.

News is hard to come by in this area. I live in Lake Village across the bridge from Greenville, but they say not to worry, but they will not know really until it happens. I live on the levy and the water is now about 5-6 feet from the top. Rising faster than they thought. I have heard that there is flooding in Tunica also, but no real news, so I cannot verify that.

There is no flooding in Greenville except inside the levee. The city itself is fine today. Tunica is 100 miles from Greenville.

What really urks me, is that they have taken away any possibility we the people have of making decisions for ourselves. Since it has been long rumored that some folks are looking to drive the darker residents out, in order to claim the land. Did you know that Blacks were forced to work on the levee during the flood of 1927, so does it surprise you that this is version 2011? And the rest of us can't do anything, because of the Ole' boy system and revenge. Why can't we be shown what is happening, so that all of us can help each other out, hand in hand as we did about September 11? God don't like ugly, remember that.
