Published 5:38 pm Wednesday, November 9, 2022

The latest episode of Voices of the Floods, a podcast by The Vicksburg Post, features 91-year-old Fitler native Percy Chocolate and his daughter, DeBorah Williams.

This episode details one man’s memories of a lifetime of floods, from evacuating on a mule and cart as a young boy to fleeing from the family home with help from the National Guard. It also addresses disparities in the way different residents experience the aftermath of floods in the South Delta, and what needs to be done to make a change.
