The Pearl River in Jackson may reach 36 feet on Tuesday making some streets impassible and sending water into homes. It could go even higher. Record-setting rainfall occurred in areas of Mississippi on Wednesday and much of that will be flowing in the Ross Barnett Reservoir soon.

“It rained a lot,” said John Sigman, reservoir general manager. “When the storm went across the Highway 16 corridor it put 10 inches in Carthage and 12 inches in Walnut Grove. “So, we’ve got a lot of water coming to us.
