Cruisin' the Coast still on despite TS Karen

Posted: Updated:
BILOXI, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The severe weather has so far not put the brakes on Cruisin the Coast this weekend.

Organizers are still optimistic this will be a record breaking year.

Thursday volunteers began loading up supplies at the Cruisin' the Coast Headquarters to go to the various Cruisin' sites. But they are holding off on some of the set-up at Cruisin' locations.

Some of the tents are not being put up because of concerns about high winds.

"The storm is a concern of ours at this point. Watching to see how things are going to work with that storm and how it's going to affect our event. We start Sunday and fortunately Cruisin' is an eight day event. So if we have one day that would be impacted from the storm itself we'll deal with that if we have to, but right now things are a go for the event and we'll watch the weather to see if we have to make any changes," said Woody Bailey with Cruisin' the Coast.

Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy is encouraging people not to leave their campers on Highway 90 if they are not secured. He says because of high winds and heavy rain, it would be better to move them inland.
