Tunica casinos to close due to flooding
All the Tunica casinos are located on the river side of the levees. They can rise with floodwaters because of how they are built (basically on barges on canals). I believe they are closing because the parking areas are likely to be underwater.
Here's the staggered closing schedule (subject to change):
Thursday, April 28, 2011 Resorts Casino
Friday, April 29, 2011 Bally's Casino
Sunday, May 1, 2011 Fitz, Hollywood, Sam's Town, Harrah's
Monday, May 2, 2011 Gold Strike, Horseshoe, Roadhouse Casino
