Sand and Supplies for Severe Weather
A possible developing tropical system in the Gulf could turn into a rainmaker here in South Mississippi, the City of Gulfport is equipping residents to be prepared.
Tomorrow and Sunday residents can pick up sand to help protect their homes and property from possible flooding at the following locations: the Orange Grove Community Center, the fire station on 42nd Avenue and at the intersection of Hewes Avenue and Glover Street.
City workers will be on hand tomorrow and Sunday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. to help out, but be sure to bring your own bags and shovels. Chris Vignes with the City of Gulfport said, “Continue to watch the weather, look at MEMA, look at the City of Gulfport’s Facebook page, we’ll put updates out there. Right now, it’s all about being alert and staying safe and what we’re doing is with the projected weather possibly coming in, being on the forefront and having that availability for citizens.”
Harrison County will also be providing sand at the Lorraine Road Work Center, the D’Iberville Work Center, in the parking lot of the Courthouse Road Pier and the Pass Christian Public Work Centers.
