Gustav Impact on Mississippi

By | September 1, 2008

My mother stayed in Biloxi at a friend’s house very close to hers in north Biloxi. She just went back home and discovered the only damage to be limbs down in her yard. Fortunately, her house is in one of the best places to be in Biloxi in a hurricane.

Winds in Biloxi reportedly reached just below hurricane strength. One of my mother’s friends who evacuated to Mobile can’t get back because the roads are closed. Highway 90 is impassible due to sand and debris blown/washed up onto the roadway.

She has heard rumors that Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian got hit pretty hard. The new Bay St. Louis bridge was closed due to the water level and the continued high winds. There is no access to the city from the east.
