HARRISON COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - As the severe weather moves out of South Mississippi, the overnight heavy rains have left many roads impassable due to flooding or other issues.

Popp’s Ferry Bridge is closed while emergency officials work two traffic accidents, so drivers should take an alternate route.

Other roads reported to have flooding include:

  • Old Highway 49 south of Pine Street
  • Woodland Way
  • Bells Ferry Road near the bridge
  • 28th Street west of Beatline Road
  • White Plains Road
  • Old Highway 15 north of Dobson

This list reflects what has been reported to Harrison County officials, and there could be more flooded roads throughout South Mississippi.

When approaching a flooded road, turn around and find an alternate route. Do not drive through standing water.

We will update this list as more road closures are reported.
