Sections of the south-central U.S. are still being inundated by flash flooding, especially Louisiana.

Weather experts say it could take until the last week of May for the Mississippi River to crest in Baton Rouge.

Currently, it's expected to rise to 44 feet, which will pose a problem for local shipping and industrial activities.

On May 21st, this flood event will become the longest in duration in Baton Rouge since a flood back in 1927. The 1927 flood event lasted 135 days.
