inondation et inflation : un histoire d'amour

The swollen Misssissippi river and its tributaries have already swamped 3 million acres of Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi. In Arkansas alone, more than a million acres of farmland have been inundated the state farm bureau said. Now the waters are converging on Mississippi River Delta, setting new water level records along the way.
