South Mississippi rivers rising; Lamey Bridge Road closed

Posted: Updated:
D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Homeowners living along rivers are preparing for the flood stages that are expected later today.

D'Iberville Police Department's Lt. Terry Hines said residential areas are already experiencing some flooding in D'Iberville.

Residents in Riverbend and Riverwalk neighborhoods in D'Iberville are moving their property to higher ground. 

"I'm helping my parents move stuff out of their shed. They are clearing out what's on the lower level," said Cassie Leblanc, whose parents live in Riverwalk neighborhood.

Currently the Tchoutcabouffa River is at 9 feet, but that number is expected to rise later this afternoon.

Hines said, Lamey Bridge has been closed from Lickskillet all the way to Johnson Still Roads due to water on the roadways.

"Once we put barricades up you'll have to turn around and go up either I-110 then to Highway 15 or new Highway 67," Hines said. 

While barricades have gone up in some areas, Hines asks motorists to turn around if they see water on the roads that haven't been barricaded yet.
