Waveland adds burn ban; No burning allowed in Diamondhead

WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - Waveland has just joined the list of communities under a burn ban. Even Thursday's heavy rain wasn't enough to undo the dry conditions across much of South Mississippi.

Earlier this week, Harrison, Jackson, Stone and George counties all enacted burn bans. And burning is never allowed in Diamondhead. So that leaves just Bay St. Louis and unincorporated Hancock County as the only areas not under a burn ban of some type.
