1927 Levee Breach

Here are some 3D images of the great levee breach of April 1927 near Greenville, Mississippi, known as the Mounds breach, and its 4-mile-wide flood delta. 30,000 people were left stranded on the levee intentionally, without food, water or shelter, so they would not leave the area with their farm labor.
