Curfew in Harrison County from 7 p.m to 7 a.m.

Harrison County Emergency Managers, first responders as well as county and city officials met today to go over plans for Tropical Storm Gordon.

Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy tells News 25 each storm is different and they have to make sure every aspect of safety is in place.

During the meeting, all local first responders confirmed their hurricane plans are in action and are ready to go.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson also announced they will be enforcing a curfew from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Harrison County EMA Director Rupert Lacy said, “We hate to cause harm to businesses, but people have to understand it is about life safety. People get out. They do not think safety. They do what they are going to do and they put themselves in harm’s way and we have to coordinate those efforts and send responders and that puts them also in harm’s way.”

Lacy says they are not sure which areas will flood and with this being a night storm they are being more strict with this curfew.
