The Jackson area may have dodged a bullet as predictions of a 36-foot crest of the Pearl River were revised Sunday to a crest of 35.5 feet as early as late Sunday night or Monday morning.
The 36-foot high-water mark had been the barometer for the increased likelihood of flooding.
“It’s all good news,” reservoir general manager John Sigman said. “If you didn’t get water in your house yet, maybe you won’t.”
Sigman said the crest at the reservoir will hold at least 24 hours before beginning to fall.
