Mississippi River Crests in Memphis

Mississippi River Crests in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The National Weather Service says the Mississippi River has crested in Memphis just short of 48 feet after threatening to bring record-setting flooding to the area.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Borghoff says the river reached 47.85 feet at 2 a.m. and is expected to stay very close to that level for the next 24 to 36 hours.

The soaking in Memphis was isolated to low-lying neighborhoods, and forced hundreds of people from their homes, but no new serious flooding is expected. Officials trust the levees will hold and protect the city's world-famous musical landmarks, from Graceland to Beale Street.

Downstream, the river is still rising as the crest heads toward Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta.

In Louisiana, inmates have been evacuated to a prison on higher ground and officials are contemplating whether to open another spillway north of Baton Rouge.
