Harrison County Board of Supervisors extends local emergency proclamation as beaches continue to open
The Harrison County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday extended the local declaration of emergency caused by Tropical Storm Cristobal. The board approved the original local proclamation on Tuesday, June 9. The action will allow Harrison County to receive state and federal reimbursements, if available.
Harrison County remains under two local proclamations — one for Tropical Storm Cristobal and one for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thanks to the swift action taken by the board, parts of Harrison County Sand Beach are reopening daily. As of Tuesday, all of the sections of the beach in Biloxi were open. The Harrison County Board of Supervisors plans to have all 26 miles of Harrison County Sand Beach open by Independence Day Weekend.
