Mississippi's flooding has reached its peak and will quickly subside with little reported damage.

According to authorities, the flood waters in central Mississippi have crested and will shortly start to subside.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency informed ABC News that as of Monday morning, flood levels had peaked at 35.37 feet.

Jackson, Mississippi, Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba stated at a press conference on Monday that no injuries or fatalities have been recorded.

Officials at the Pearl River-connected Ross R. Barnett Reservoir claimed to have boosted the water output from 55,000 to 60,000 cubic feet per second.

According to WAPT, an affiliate of ABC News in Jackson, this persisted on Sunday and Monday morning.

The flows out of the reservoir were able to be reduced by another 10,000 cubic feet per second, and officials stated they are trying to lower them even further, during the news conference on Monday.

But according to Pope, the water level will peak on Wednesday at 33 feet and could drop as low as 28 feet on Thursday.
