GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

If you ask folks at Forest Heights Missionary Baptist Church, they'll tell you every time there's a heavy rain or storm, they’re directly impacted by the flooding from Turkey Creek. It's a problem they’ve been dealing with for years, and sandbags are a permanent fixture at the church.

Flood relief could be on the way. Gulfport Councilwoman Ella Holmes Hines is hosting a public meeting Tuesday night at 6pm at the Isaiah Fredricks Community Center.

It's an opportunity for people to get more information about how $7.5 million will be spent for habitat restoration and conservation in Turkey Creek.
