Working on the river

Published 12:00 am Sunday, December 14, 2008

In a photo taken from near Lee Street Saturday, three towboats are seen working to control northbound barges in the turn of the Mississippi River. With tributaries full from last week’s rain and ice across much of the state the river level at Vicksburg Saturday was at 10.9 feet, up from 10 feet a day earlier.
