MEMA warns of heavy winds as tropical storm nears

Mississippi emergency management has warned of the chance of heavy rainfall and high winds due to a tropical depression moving through the Gulf.

From MEMA:

The National Hurricane Center has predicted that a tropical depression is likely to form during the next day or so while a tropical wave system moves west-northwestward across the

northwestern Bahamas, southern Florida, and the Florida Keys. The system is forecast to emerge over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Monday afternoon and move toward the north-central Gulf Coast Tuesday night and Wednesday. This system will produce locally heavy rains and gusty winds.

Harrison County EMA is offering self serve sandbags at various locations. Click the article below to find out more.


MEMA is ready to assist our local and state partners as needed. #mswx #tropics #hurricaneseason
