(VICKSBURG, MISS.) December 28, 2015 - As mayor of the City of Vicksburg, I have spoken with Public Works Director Garnet Van Norman, and he has informed me that the City of Vicksburg is taking all necessary precautions regarding the city's floodwall for a projected Mississippi River crest of 54 feet on January 15th or 16th. As the river rises, we call on all citizens in the northern part of the city to please make all  preparations and take all necessary precautions to be safe. The City of Vicksburg, along with emergency agencies, will continue to monitor the situation and keep the community updated.
