Deer feed in a field near a partially-flooded oil derrick in Concordia Parish, La., Wednesday, May 18, 2011. Officials are warning locals to be mindful of wildlife movement as waters from the Old River Control Structure and the Morganza Spillway push them out of their normal habitats. Some of the worst flooding in Mississippi is in the area from Vicksburg northeast to Yazoo City, along the Yazoo River. The Yazoo Backwater Levee north of Vicksburg connects with the main Mississippi River levee. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials had predicted that at least a foot of water could pour over the top, flooding tens of thousands of acres of farmland in the Delta. less
