With all eyes on Hurricane Irma, some false information is floating around and causing a panic among residents in South Mississippi.
Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy is working nonstop to track the possible path of the category five hurricane.
Lacy tells News 25 this is a reminder for locals to freshen up their hurricane plans.This includes survival kits, evacuation routes, digitizing important documents, and stocking up on supplies. “Until we get through the height of hurricane season, getting into the month of October when it starts to do the decline, is that people need to have those hurricane supplies just in case we see those storms pop up and start to come our way,” said Lacy.
