HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Board of Supervisors President Kim Savant thanked county employees, and especially first responders, for their hard work in responding to Hurricane Isaac.

"We were very blessed and very fortunate," Savant said, when asked about the impact of the storm on Harrison County. "Other than the flooding, and we did have some flooded homes, Harrison County is in very good shape."

Getting the beach cleaned and restored will likely be the biggest expense facing the county. That cost alone is estimated at around $4 million.

Supervisor Savant said at Tuesday's meeting that the federal government will reimburse 75 percent of the cost of the beach clean up and other storm related recovery work.
