MEMA headquarters in Pearl back to normal

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Operations at MEMA headquarters in Pearl are back to normal.

This after Tropical Storm Karen dissipated in the Gulf of Mexico.

The system is forecast to stay offshore of the Mississippi Coast.

However, the National Weather Service says there could be one to three inches of rain and some coastal flooding Sunday.

In a press release from the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Robert Latham said, "We were very fortunate that Karen was unable to intensify thanks to very dry air and high wind shear in the Gulf of Mexico,".

"I appreciate all our counties and state agencies for being prepared to respond. We are also pleased the "Cruisin' the Coast" events will be able to go on as planned," Latham added.

The Emergency Operations Centers in Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties have also returned to normal operations.
