City of Gulfport: State of Emergency

With today’s unprecedented weather event, dropping over 10″ of rain this
morning with continued accumulation anticipated over the course of the day,
resulting in widespread flooding throughout the City of Gulfport, I am
hereby declaring a State of Emergency.
Monitoring the storm since early this morning, our crews are at work
responding to storm drain blockages, water rescues, road closures, and
emergency calls. If you are experiencing or are aware of situations
needing critical attention, please call 311 for non-emergencies, and 911 for
emergencies. We urge citizens to continue to use extreme caution, and not
venture out unless necessary.
Billy Hewes
Mayor
City of Gulfport
