Water continued rising along the Mississippi River on May 8, 2011. On that day, the Advanced Hydrological Prediction Service (AHPS) reported that the Mississippi’s water level had reached 47.46 feet (14.47 meters) at 3:00 p.m. CDT in Osceola, Arkansas, and 47.55 feet (14.49 meters) at 2:00 p.m. in Memphis, Tennessee. The AHPS further relayed a civil emergency message at the request of some local officials. “All Shelby [County] residents should wrap up precautionary actions over the next couple of days and be prepared to evacuate. . . . The mayor of Memphis added, ‘We want to reassure our citizens that disaster teams are in place and will be doing everything possible to keep everyone safe.’”
