All coast counties under burn ban now

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Extremely dry conditions across South Mississippi have prompted another coast county to issue a burn ban.

WLOX News has learned that Hancock County is the latest county to institute this ban. Others include Harrison, George, Jackson and Stone counties.

The burn bans also include all of the municipalities in those counties. Absolutely no outdoor burning is allowed across our coast right now.

We'll let you know when those bans will be lifted.
