Hard to tell Tropical Storm Karen is lurking

PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

At the Harrison County Emergency Operations Center, the message from Saturday's 11:00 briefing was simple.  Don't let your guard down just yet.  Continue to monitor Tropical Storm Karen.

Yet, across the coast, it's business as usual.  In Pearl River County, children participated in their weekly soccer matches.

In Pascagoula, families played in a splash pad.

On the Biloxi Ocean Springs Bridge, exercise enthusiasts ignored what was lurking to the south and got in a jog, a walk, or a bike ride.

The manager at the Home Depot in Biloxi told WLOX News his store was surprisingly quiet.  Very few people had stopped by to purchase storm supplies.

A Biloxi hotel manager said his reservations took a bit of a hit this weekend.  A resort that should have been nearly full had just 50% occupancy last night.  And it was just 60% booked for tonight.  And the reason for the cancellations was Tropical Storm Karen.
