Posted on August 26, 2022


For Immediate Release:

August 25, 2022

City of Jackson residents affected by the 2020 flood are advised to take precautions 

(Jackson, Miss.) – The City of Jackson is expected to experience flooding in some areas of the City as the Barnett Reservoir releases water from the spillway to relieve pressure on the reservoir dam. This will cause the Pearl River to rise and is expected to affect some areas of Jackson.

Those who were affected by the 2020 flood or live in low lying areas of the City are advised to take precautionary measures as the water is expected to rise in the next couple of days. Some roads are beginning to experience flooding today. The City will provide a list of affected roads and closures as needed.

By Tuesday, the Pearl River is expected to crest at 36 feet which will impact roadways and some residences.

Sandbags are now available for residents to fill at 4225 Michael Avalon Street from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents are advised to call 311 if they cannot make it to the sandbag distribution site.

Hinds County officials have been briefed and will provide assistance as needed. They will have swift water boats and high water vehicles in the event of residential flooding. Residents are advised to take time now to prepare, pack and develop an evacuation plan. All evacuations are voluntary at the moment.

Shelter preparations are being made now and will be announced soon.

The City of Jackson, along with its Hinds County partners, will continue to update residents of new developments on a day-to-day basis.
