Hotel rooms going fast

A surge of people fleeing Isaac will soon be heading north into central Mississippi and beyond.

The MDOT hurricane warning bulletins tell the story as folks head in from the Gulf Coast and Louisiana. Area hotels are booking up quickly as evacuees look for shelter from the storm.

The Holiday Inn Express and Suites along the Interstate in Byram is booked full. No reservations are available.

In Jackson, this small luxury inn expects a sellout tonight. The Fairview guest services manager says they are ready for a packed house.

Nearly every hotel and motel in Ridgeland were booked prior to Isaac. Some business travel cancellations are anticipated. Managers in this area are hoping to open their doors by freeing up inventory beginning Monday evening.

The Jackson Visitors and Convention Center has established a number to call for hotel availability. 601- 960-1891.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation has listed an emergency contact number for evacuees: 1-866-521-6368.
