SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - For residents in low lying areas, any tropical activity can quickly turn into flooding. That's why Jackson County Emergency Management Director Donald Langham is urging all residents living in low-lying areas prone to flooding to take precautions now.
"Even though this storm is not forecast to strengthen into a hurricane, I caution everyone to take this storm seriously," Langham said.
All three coastal counties are offering sands bags. Remember, these locations are usually self serve, so it's always a good idea to bring a shovel.
