This video shows the historic Mississippi River flooding crest in downtown Memphis on May 5, 2011 along the I-40 Memphis bridge. This was shot the day of the crest. The levels are the highest of all Mississippi River floods in history -- beyond The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, and well beyond the 1993 Mississippi Flood. Despite the flood levees upstream being blown-up by the Army Corps of Engineers, the waters have continued to rise. No real flood damage in Memphis, but the river's western banks extended into West Memphis, Arkansas shutting down businesses and necessitating evacuation of some residents.
