WMC AN5 hosts #FloodRelief16 fundraiser for Mid-South victims

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Last week's historic rainfall left homes ravaged not only in the Mid-South, but also farther south in Mississippi and Louisiana.

Areas across the Mid-South saw at least 10 inches of rain. Cities like Clarksdale, Mississippi, remain flooded, forcing residents to use boats to travel between homes.
