Sometimes Mother Nature is a b$tch— like, for example, floods ravaging the state of Mississippi. And when you’re President Barack Obama, that means visiting the victims of those floods to bring support and hope.

As the flood waters continue to rise, Obama met with local residents and emergency personnel to assess the damage this latest natural disaster has inflicted.

The Mississippi River came up to Memphis last week, falling just short of an all-time high record set in 1937. Most of the city was protected by the high levees, but other low-lying neighborhoods have been inundated with water, affecting some of the poorest communities in the area while washing away crops and forcing people to flee.

While in Mississippi, Obama will also deliver the commencement address to at Booker T. Washington High School, which was the winner of this year’s White House Race to the Top High School Commencement Challenge.

The school was selected prior to the flooding, and has seen its graduation rate jump from 55% in 2007 to a knockout 82% in 2010— we’re glad that these students will have something to celebrate in the wake of this disaster!
