Mississippi is experiencing a severe drought with an ongoing drought.
The state is struggling with more than 1.5 million people without power and many communities are experiencing widespread flooding, with water levels rising by as much as 2 feet in some areas.
On Thursday, the Mississippi River flooded the Mississippi Delta in what has been dubbed the worst flood event in Mississippi history.
The flood caused more than a foot of water to inundate a section of the Mississippi, but the Mississippi is still expected to crest by Friday.
A week earlier, Mississippi’s Governor Phil Bryant had declared a state of emergency in the state.
The governor has since moved to temporarily suspend the state’s water supply, and the federal government has sent $1.3 million in disaster relief.
The Mississippi River flood, a rare event in the Mississippi Gulf, happened as the Mississippi and Mississippi River systems were connected by the Mississippi Flood Control Commission (MFCC) and the National Weather Service (NWS).
The MFCC is an arm of the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), and it works with states, tribal governments, businesses, and individuals to manage flood risks.
The MFBCC was created in 2005 to coordinate federal flood control activities across the United States, but its current role is limited to managing the Mississippi.
The commission has two primary missions: maintaining and enforcing flood insurance, and monitoring and forecasting flood risks for the state of Mississippi.
When the MFCBCC was established, Mississippi had the most severe drought on record.
