Mississippi River Rising

Posted: Updated:
WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (FOX13) -

The Mississippi River continues to rise.  Today it is expected to reach 33.5 feet, that is about half a foot below flood stage.  The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory as a precaution.  We will not see the levels of flooding seen two years ago, when the river rose to record levels. 

Fox13's Scott Madaus is live in West Memphis with a look at some of the issues high water is causing in low level areas.
