Amazing Pictures from the Mississippi Flooding

NPR has some pretty amazing pictures of the flooding in Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Some people created “personal levees” to protect their homes from the rising water.

The city had been preparing for days for the floodwaters to arrive; and before evacuating the area, some residents and farmers took matters into their own hands and built personal levees to protect their homes from floodwaters. Some of the levees rise as high as the roof, if not higher.
