ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Heavy rainfall is inundating southern states in the U.S. prompting rescues and evacuations.

In Stone County, Mississippi, a flash flood emergency was issued.

Emergency crews conducted water rescues in neighborhoods near the Biloxi River.

Heavy rainfall also raised fears of flooding in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.

Houston schools were closed last week due to the downpours and thousands of people were left without power.
