JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Officials are still monitoring the Pearl River in Jackson amid an inundated river after recent flash flooding.

Water has gotten into streets in Northeast Jackson, but has not reached any houses.

There is also water across Westbrook Road and in the soccer fields.

The river is set to slowly fall over the next few days.

Rain later in the week is not expected to cause any significant rise to the river in the Jackson area.
