Levee standing strong, officials say
The Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board has responded to normal saturation adjacent to the berm area near Robinsonville in Tunica County.
“This response is a normal, high-water exercise,” said Kelly Greenwood, Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board chief engineer and CEO. “There is no cause for alarm.”
Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board crews have brought in trucks of sand to contain the saturation, typical in a high-water event.
“This does not constitute a levee emergency,” said Kelly Greenwood, Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board chief engineer and CEO. “We are confident in the stability of our levees, and we will continue to monitor them 24 hours a day.”
