(NECN/CNN) - Neighborhoods and cars are submerged in murky flood waters as the Mississippi River overflows. In Memphis, Bob Nations, director of Shelby County, Tennessee's office of preparedness, says rivers flowing into the mighty Mississippi are beginning to flood, too.
Flooding has forced evacuations in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Meanwhile, people in Arkansas and Tennessee are stacking sandbags in an effort to keep flood waters at bay.
