Northern Mississippi is seeing a lot of rain which is impacting people in the area. WJTV’s Marcus James talked with MEMA, who is encouraging everyone to make sure they pay attention to the forecast over the weekend.
“As we transition again to the overnight hours, make sure you have multiple ways to recieve alerts and warnings,” says Ray Coleman, a public information officer with MEMA. “What I mean by that is, whether it’s your cellphone or a weather radio.. have something that can alert you about flash flooding.”
MEMA is also encouraging drivers to turn around so they don’t drown if they see a road that’s flooded.
