The latest: A spike in statewide numbers

The latest numbers show a statewide spike of 257 positive coronavirus cases reported in the last 24 hours, bringing the new total to 2,260 positive cases statewide, and 76 deaths, including nine reported since Wednesday.

Those numbers – along with a look at numbers from the three Coastal counties – are among the new information in today’s Be Prepared report.

Today’s seven-minute video ends with a musical tribute to the resilience of Biloxi Lighthouse. In 2010, singer-songwriter Steve Cason, a former deckhand on the Biloxi Shrimping Tour, penned the song to tell the story of the city’s signature landmark.
