Bay St. Louis Municipal Harbor still under mandatory evacuation

The Bay St. Louis Municipal Harbor has been under mandatory evacuation since Sunday, August 23rd, but is looking to allow boats back in this Friday morning.

The mandatory evacuation is still in effect even though Hurricane Laura is not expected to cause drastic impacts in South Mississippi.

The National Hurricane Center explained that the storm surge could still be an issue for the Coast considering a possibility of a two to four foot storm surge above normal tide in Hancock and Harrison County.

Of the remaining three dozen boats in the harbor, if damage were to occur the insurance of the boats would cover for it.
