Flood waters damage dozens of homes in Pearl River Co.

PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - We've been on the phone with Pearl River County Emergency Operators Director Danny Manley. He tells us the flood waters have slowly receded.

However, at last check, his emergency teams know about 44 homes significantly damaged, and in some cases destroyed by the floods.  Another 43 homeowners have minor water damage to clean up.

Manley tells us those damage report numbers will go up over the next few days.

Road damage is also an issue for Pearl River County public works crews. They're trying to patch up pot holes before they get too big.

The Red Cross spent Tuesday in the northern part of Pearl River County handing out clean up kits. We're told they'll help people further south on Wednesday.
