Community Meeting on Flood Issues in Gulfport

It has been almost exactly two months since heavy rain caused flooding across the Coast. One city continues to try and make sure its residents are prepared if it were to happen again.
Tomorrow night at 6 at the Good Deeds Community Center, the City of Gulfport will be holding a community meeting to discuss flooding issues in the city. Gulfport leaders invite residents from all corners of the city to make sure their voices are heard.
Homes, roads and businesses were severely damaged due to high waters and countless residents had to be rescued from their homes. If a disaster like this were to strike again, city leaders want to make sure everyone is prepared. Harrison County District 4 Supervisor Kent Jones said, “We’ve been having flooding in certain parts of District 4 for the past 40 to 50 years. So, what we wanted to do is have a meeting and the community to come and get engaged because we do know that we need a cohesive, comprehensive master plan for flooding within Harrison County. I’m more concerned with District 4 at this particular meeting.”
This is the first of two meetings. The second meeting will be Tuesday, July 12th.
