Sand bags available in Harrison County
With the severe weather we should be experiencing throughout the week, sand bags are available to Mississippi residents at several Harrison County locations.
Sand, shovels, and bags are available at 14 different locations to residents throughout the rest of the week. Residents will need to fill their own bags, but between the hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. workers will be on scene to help those in need.
Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy is urging to everyone to prepare early for these threatening weather conditions. “None of the cities, none of the government is taking this very lightly that we’re looking at some type of flood and people can protect property, rising waters by having sand bags.”
