Flood watch issued for Biloxi, Harrison County

A flood watch is in effect for Biloxi and Harrison County through Friday morning because of rain associated with Tropical Depression Humberto.

A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current weather reports.

The National Weather Service reports this afternoon that two to four inches of rain is possible within a few hours, with storm totals of four to six inches expected. Higher amounts could be possible in some areas, the weather service said.

Division-Reynoir back to four-way stop

The city has erected a four-way stop at Division and Reynoir streets after a traffic accident damaged the traffic signals at the intersection.

City Engineer Damon Toricelli said stop signs will remain in place until repairs are made to the traffic signals, which were restored only in June after being destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Said Torricelli: “Motorists should continue to use caution in this area.”
