Jackson County, Miss., recommends voluntary evacuation due to Nate

Posted: Updated:

The Jackson County Office of Emergency Services is strongly recommending a voluntary evacuation for all residents living in low-lying flood prone areas near any waterways, bayous, creeks, and drainages due to storm surge potential of 3-9 feet, or greater, above ground level in certain areas close to beach fronts and any inland waterways. This evacuation will be effective at 8 a.m. Saturday. 
Also, the Jackson County American Red Cross 361 Emergency Shelters will be opening at 8 a.m. Saturday. Residents going to a shelter should bring medication, pillow change of clothes, snacks and all necessary personal essentials.  The Red Cross website www.redcross.org provides information about shelter guidelines, hurricane preparation, and a downloadable hurricane app.
