City engaged in flood response as Pearl River expected to rise 

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

(Jackson, Miss.) – The City of Jackson is advising residents who were affected by the 2020 flood to make evacuation plans in the next 48 hours as the water level of the Pearl River is increasing and expected to crest at 36 feet in the coming days.

An excessive rainfall, along with the release of water from the Barnett Reservoir, is expected to result in flooding to some Jackson areas.

The City has put together a comprehensive interactive map that allows residents to put in an address to determine their flood threat level. It can be found by following this link. A list of streets in danger of flooding is listed below.

Sandbags are now available for residents to fill at 4225 Michael Avalon Street from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This location will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. this weekend. Residents who face a flooding threat are advised to call 311 if they cannot make it to the sandbag distribution site. Due to the high volume of calls, please leave a message if you don’t get a direct response.

The City’s JTRAN bus service will remain on standby to assist with transportation for elderly, disabled and homebound residents. We ask that this service be reserved for those in need.

The Red Cross is opening the Jackson Police Department Training Academy at 3000 St. Charles St. as a temporary shelter for residents in need. It will be open 6 p.m. Friday night. Cots, blankets and meals will be provided for those seeking refuge from the flooding. Residents are asked to bring additional necessities with them.

The Jackson Police Department and Hinds County Sheriff’s Office plan to have additional patrol units available in areas affected by flooding. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks will have swift water boats in the event of residential flooding.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, along with the Hinds County Emergency Management Agency, will continue to monitor the situation.

The City of Jackson, along with its County and State partners, will provide updates to residents and the media of new developments on a day-to-day basis. We will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Real Time Command Center. 

All evacuations are strongly encouraged but voluntary at the moment.

Additional information, flood updates and evacuation and preparation tips can be found on the City’s website under the Flood Emergency tab.
