PIKE COUNTY, MS (WAFB) -Quoting: The Chosen One
Tangipahoa Parish is calling for a mandatory evacuation of all areas along the Tangipahoa River after officials were notified a dam in southern Mississippi is failing.

Biggest effect is how it could effect I-55 north of the Louisiana/Miss border. Even if the dam goes completely, it won't be a "record" flood for this area. that was in 1900.
Mostly sparsely populated bottom lands. It drains in to a large wildlife area that runs all the way to the Gulf.
