Mississippi River at 33 feet on Vicksburg gauge

The Mississippi River is currently at 33 feet on the Vicksburg Mississippi River gauge. This is 34 feet above the historical low set in late summer of 2012, at minus-1 feet. Terral is grateful to currently operate under more “normal” river conditions. We remain cautious due to predictions of dry conditions again in the Midwest for 2013. Our river levels are directly affected by rainfall in the Ohio Valley, Upper Mississippi Valley and the Midwestern states, and we hope for adequate snowmelt and normal rains from these regions to avoid a repeat of the disastrous low river condition we experienced in 2012.
