HAPPENING TODAY: Public meeting to discuss effects from Bonnet Carre Spillway


While the Bonnet Carre Spillway is finally closed, our area will continue to suffer from lingering effects, such as the algae bloom that invaded our coastal waters.

You can find out more about this topic at a meeting set for Tuesday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at the Ocean Springs Library. Local university teachers, scientists and researchers will be on hand for a question-and-answer session about water contact advisories, beach closures, harmful algal blooms, bacteria and red tide.

During his time at OU he interned as a meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City where he experienced all types of weather ranging from tornadoes, flooding and winter storms. Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in Meteorology. Payton's interest in weather began at the very young age of six after a local broadcast meteorologist talked to his class about preparing for severe weather. That along with growing up in the middle of Tornado Alley, Payton has been hooked to the weather ever since. He is excited to move to the Gulf Coast and start a new adventure away from the plains. He loves venturing around the area finding new coffee shops, local places to eat, and he looks forward to being involved in the communities on the Mississippi coast.
