ADAMS COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – Natchez Mayor Dan Gibson issued state of emergency declaration for the city. This comes after neighbors reported low water pressure as freezing temperatures continue in Mississippi. Mayor Gibson said the water pressure system has been strained due to leaks and water main breaks.
Crews are addressing the leaks where they can, according to the mayor. The repairs require shutting down parts of the city at a time. As a result, some businesses and homes may only have a trickle of water or no water at all.
Mayor Gibson said it could take a couple of days to restore the water pressure system, and he asks for patience from customers.
