State of emergency declared in Biloxi

Posted: Updated:
BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Prepare for some water from Karen. That's what Biloxi city leaders and emergency management officials said Friday morning. They met to declare a state of emergency.

This declaration gives the city the authorization it needs to make any pre-storm preparation plans.

Officials are expecting 5 to 8 foot seas, which would push water onto Highway 90. Mayor A.J. Holloway wants to remind everyone to stay indoors when there are heavy rains and strong winds.

All Biloxi personnel are on call this weekend.
