Vance Lauderdale gives you the answers and history at Memphis Magazine.

And Why? No one is asking that question today. Here's the floodwall behind the Pyramid with a mark that indicates the 100 year high water mark: 48.7 feet in 1937. Water is at 47.12 feet today and expected to crest at 48 feet on Monday. All those within the 100 year floodplain have been advised by the County and City to be ready to evacuate.
