Water is rising in the Timber Ridge subdivision in Pass Christian


There are a number of low-lying areas throughout the Pass and residents and business owners know all too well to fortify their properties well in advance of storms.

Timber Ridge resident Mary Catherine Scriber, who also owns the Whisky Bar and Hotel in the downtown area of Pass Christian, has been busy getting both her home and business ready for Sally’s arrival.

Her entire yard on Basswood Drive was engulfed in water when Tropical Storm Cristobal passed through back in June.

She and her family have been keeping a close eye out on the water coming in to their yard and the subdivision from the Bay. “Every storm is unique. This right here is the result of the tide. High tide Monday was at 9:56 am. We have quite a bit of water already. Regardless, if it’s a tropical storm, or Cat 1, depending on how the storm comes in, and the tidal charts and where we are located, we can get some pretty significant water here.”

A number of residents who live in the Timber Ridge subdivision in Pass Christian had already put out sandbags and done other things to flood proof their homes.

By midday Monday a number of roads in parts of Timber Ridge had already become impassable and parts of the golf course had also flooded.

Storm surge seems to be the most pressing concern to residents who live in this area.
