Harrison County: Beach crowds for July 4th weekend disappointing

By Danielle Thomas – bio | email

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Officials are calling the number of people spending time on the beach this holiday weekend disappointing.

Harrison County Sand Beach Director Bobby Weaver said turnout was not typical of a normal for a Fourth of July weekend. Weaver believes oil is to blame and perhaps choppy seas.

He said there was not much oil impact on the beach on Sunday. He said while heavy cleanup is still underway in Long Beach and Pass Christian, crews in Gulfport and Biloxi spent Sunday doing final comb throughs.
