When I lived in Greenville Mississippi, one of the apartments I lived in was inside the 1936 levees. This could have been very wet but it was actually built on top of the 1927 levee. I don't remember the author but he was famous, at least locally. He wrote of patrolling the levees during flood stages to watch for someone trying to dynamite the levee.
