SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Earlier this week, a storm system brought flooding rains to parts of South Mississippi. It caused school closing and road closures across the WLOX area.
That storm system has since moved away from our area. In its wake, it left up to four to eight inches of rainfall, according to a Sunday National Weather Service statement.
The following is a list of unofficial rainfall totals from the National Weather Service for at least four inches of rain for the period of 7 a.m. Thursday ending 7 a.m. Saturday:
