Floodwaters Rising in southeast Arkansas, Mississippi

GREENVILLE, MS. - The parking lot of the Harlow's Casino, just east of the Mississippi River and the Arkansas border, looks like a lake.

Channel 7's Matt Johnson snapped this picture Sunday afternoon, showing sandbags lining the perimeter of the building to prevent more flooding.

Matt has talked to residents in the area, and they say they're concerned about levees giving way, and their homes becoming the next flood target.

Matt asked one woman from Eudora how it feels to witness history, and she said she just doesn't want her home to become "history" as a result of the floods.

The Mississippi River is expected to flood in Desha and Chicot counties sometime on Sunday.
