MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- It's time to worry about spring flooding in West Tennessee.
There will be a flood water field exercise Thursday along the lower Mississippi River in Memphis. The U.S. Coast Guard is conducting the exercise and has invited several non-Coast Guard agencies to participate.
Last year, the Mississippi flooded in Memphis and elsewhere in West Tennessee, displacing dozens of people. Spring thawing in the Midwest traditionally causes flooding along the Mississippi.
