MEMA Continues to Monitor Tropical Storm Isaac

PEARL – The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency continues to track Tropical Storm Isaac as it moves through the Caribbean towards the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center forecast cone for Isaac includes most of the Mississippi Gulf Coast down the west coast of Florida. A Hurricane Warning has been issued for the Florida Keys and much of the southern tip of the state.

“I think it is important for everybody in the forecast cone to prepare for Isaac as if it will impact them directly,” said MEMA Director Robert Latham. “Even a tropical storm or hurricane making landfall in the Florida Panhandle or Alabama coast could have a significant impact on our state. I urge all of our residents to prepare now for Isaac well before it makes landfall. Even if it misses our state we never know what the next storm could bring.”

Residents within the forecast cone for Tropical Storm Isaac should make sure they have a fully stocked emergency supply kit to support them for at least three days. Here are some of the items families and individuals should have in their kit:

  • Batteries.
  • Flashlight.
  • Battery operated radio.
  • Water- 1 gallon per person, per day.
  • Non-perishable food.
  • Extra medication.
  • Important documents.
  • Baby food and supplies.
  • Pet food and supplies.
  • Cash.

For a comprehensive list of items you should have in your emergency supply kit visit MEMA’s website at www.msema.org. Residents in coastal communities should also have and evacuation and communication plan in place. This means know where you would go if local officials issue an evacuation order and how you would get there. Establish a contact point with a friend or family member who lives outside of the area where that you can check in with and let them know you are safe.

MEMA has been in constant communication with Gov. Phil Bryant, key state agencies and our southern counties preparing for this storm and is prepared to deploy the State Emergency Response team to the Gulf Coast as soon as Sunday should the storm head towards Mississippi.
