All six South Mississippi counties are under a flood watch with the latest advisory issued for Pearl River County just before five this morning.
Throughout the Coast, residents are bracing for heavy rainfall and possible flooding in low lying areas.
Residents in Jackson County are hoping history won’t repeat itself as seen back in January when river flooding forced some Escatawpa residents from their homes.
Jackson County has already declared a state of emergency in anticipation of heavy rainfall and the building tropical system in the gulf.
As evidenced just one month ago, Red Cross volunteers are on stand by and ready to come in to help those in flooded areas once this system passes through.
