The Harrison County 911 Commission wants people to know they may have trouble using their cell phones this weekend during Spring Break.
Cell phone lines will likely be jammed causing users to have difficulty placing calls. Local cellular suppliers CenturyTel and Cellular South plan to add capacity to the systems to accommodate the heavy load of wireless phone use this weekend.
The 911 Commission recommends if you need to dial 911 for an emergency, you should use a regular phone. Officials also want people to remember to only call that number for fires and life or death emergencies.
To get general information about traffic conditions, officials in Biloxi, Gulfport and Harrison County have set up special information lines.
