The cause...

The cause of the Mississippi River of 1927 was the breaking of the Levee System. After a few levees broke the whole system then crashed. Leaving the people to suffer in water for over 2 months.

The Consequences

People had to go days stranded in the water with no food or anything to drink , for days upon days. White people where rescued to safety before the African Americans were. They had to work in deplorable conditions.
