A street sign is seen in floodwaters from the rising Mississippi River in St. Francisville, La., where a dozen homes and businesses, and several camps, were flooded, on Friday, May 20, 2011. Residents were leaving in the face of a mandatory evacuation order set to kick in on Saturday as Mississippi River water flowing through the Morganza spillway is expected to reach communities in the Atchafalaya Basin.
