Mississippi Flooding on Google Maps

Mississippi Flooding Map

The Mississippi River watershed has experienced record rainfall over large areas and the river, and many of its tributaries, have begun to swell to record levels. This Google Map allows you to view a number of layers from the American Red Cross, GeoEye and the National Weather Service.

The map includes an overlay from the US Army Corps of Engineers which allows you to view the estimated inundation as a polygon on the map. The American Red Cross layer shows the locations of available shelters. The GeoEye layers allow you to view recent satellite imagery for a number of areas affected by the flooding.
