Wolf River floodwaters continue to fall, leaves behind mess

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - As floodwaters continue to recede in some areas, those who work and live along the Wolf River are cleaning up the muddy mess left behind.

Harrison County road crews started cleaning debris, sand and barricades from Menge Avenue early Wednesday morning.

Longtime Bells Ferry Road resident Janet Hataway says although this round of Wolf River flooding was hectic, it wasn’t as bad as when Hurricane Isaac rolled though back in 2012.

"No as bad as Isaac, I thought,” Hataway said. “It was way worse. It stayed up for days on end. It seemed like it would never go down. This time I think it's gone down pretty fast."

She says it was a little inconvenient for a while earlier this week, especially for those living right on the river bank.

"A lot of people have boats,” Hataway added. “They know what to expect when it gets that high.”
