Caption: Great Mississippi Flood, 1927. Flood refugee camp in Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA, in 1927. This is part of the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, when heavy rains caused the Mississippi River to burst its banks and levees in 145 places in six states, flooding thousands of square kilometres of land up to 10 metres deep in water. This was one of the worst floods ever in the history of the USA. This camp is on high ground, but other refugees were stranded on levees, and lived in worse conditions. The 3700-kilometre-long Mississippi has the third largest drainage basin in the world, and a long history of flooding.
