Harrison County officials stressing safety

River flooding is still a major concern for Harrison County residents.

Some roadways are still barricaded up and officials cannot stress enough the importance of not driving through these barricades.

They’re also asking law enforcement to be very strict with the barricades and you may be issued a ticket.

You also need to be extremely careful when cleaning up after storms like these. Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said, “With the wind that we had, if you’re cutting broken limbs or trees that are leaning you need to be careful. They’ve already had some death in Louisiana from people cutting falling trees. So, you need to be careful about that.”

Lastly, a reminder to not drive through water you cannot see the bottom of. Doing so puts you at risk of having your vehicle stall out.
