One Biloxi police officer says he's never seen so much water on Irish Hill Drive. That's one of the problem areas Biloxi patrolmen are watching as more rain falls on an already saturated South Mississippi.

Other spots in Biloxi where water is an issue include sections of east Biloxi where infrastructure repairs have torn up city streets. Division Street has a lot of standing water on it. So does Highway 90.

Around 6:00 a.m., the Mississippi Highway Patrol was on the scene in Long Beach near mile marker 28 where a vehicle flipped into the median. At the time, a MHP spokesman told WLOX News westbound I-10 was down to one lane in that area. The left lane was blocked by several emergency vehicles. No word on any injuries or how many people were involved.
