GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Crews have cleaned up much of the mess where an 18-wheeler overturned on the cloverleaf at Hwy. 49 and I-10 in Gulfport.

Police say the northbound off ramp has reopened, but they are asking drivers to use caution because of work still going on in the area.

The truck overturned and started leaking diesel fuel just before 11 a.m., creating traffic backups on the interstate. The ramp reopened around 12:30 p.m.

    At 7:30 Wednesday morning, Ocean Springs city workers stepped up to the city hall flag pole.

And just like that, five days of debate over whether the state flag should fly in Ocean Springs temporarily came to an end.
