Memphis TN Flooding 2011 Photos?

The Mississippi River crested in Memphis TN at nearly 48 feet on Tuesday, falling inches short of its record.

The mighty Mississippi River is now six times its normal size and police have evacuated parts of Memphis as the river crested overnight just shy of 48 feet.

How much time is going to pass until things get back to normal and the flooding goes away in Memphis TN?
Can anyone link to photos of the 2011 flooding?

It is expected to be weeks before the waters return to normal levels.
Memphis residents could be dealing with high water levels into June.

President Obama declared the affected areas to be worthy of federal funds relief, and the Army is currently sending troops to areas already affected by the flooding.

Thousands of residents in several states have evacuated their homes along the Mississippi River.
If the flood was not bad enough, authorities warned that poisonous snakes and rats seeking shelter may lurk in closets.
Here are some of the photos I found of the flooding in Memphis TN.
