Hurricane Precaution Force Biloxi Harbors to Empty

By:  Keith Burton - GCN   9/3/18

Rapidly moving tropical storm Gordon has triggered an evacuation of all vessels at Biloxi's harbors, effective immediately,

Harbor officials contacted by GCN Monday afternoon say they are trying to give as much time and warning as possible as Gordon is forecast to be near hurricane strength by the time it makes landfall sometime Tuesday night.

Area bridges will be frequently opened to allow for boat traffic. Motorists should keep that fact in mind while driving.
