While much of the flooding in Harrison County has subsided, we’re still experiencing extreme high tide and south winds are continuing to push water and sand onto Highway 90.
In the aftermath of Cristobal, Harrison County Emergency Management received reports of roof damage to two homes and the Red Cross assisted one family displaced by water damage.
Director Rupert Lacy says responders were also very busy over the weekend helping motorists stuck in flood waters. “My advice is always going to be ‘turn around, don’t drown.’ It’s so true that a sloppy tropical system can do just as much damage as a small hurricane. It is hurricane season. We need to prepare for all season because there could be the possibility that we’re doing this again soon.”
Lacy says if you need to report damage go to crisistrack.com as this will allow Harrison County access to federal and state resources if they become available.
