Mississippi shelters on standby, opening Saturday

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency officials have announced at least five shelters in Harrison and Pearl River counties will open late Saturday afternoon. Sixteen other shelters in southern counties are on standby.

Masks are required to be worn at all shelters and extra ones will be provided to anyone who does not have one, according to the website.

The Mississippi State Department of Health announced the Mississippi State Medical Needs Shelter, 1640 Coy Ave., in Wiggins, Stone County, will open at noon Saturday. The shelter is a last resort for people whose medical needs cannot be accommodated in a general population shelter.

Shelter admission is based on several criteria, including people with health or medical conditions requiring professional care; those with chronic conditions requiring assistance with daily living activities or skilled nursing care; those in need of supervised medication dispensing and vital signs readings; those with physical, mental or cognitive disabilities who can't shelter with the general population; and those with other disabilities who cannot shelter with the general population.

Only one caregiver can accompany a resident inside. Service animals will be allowed in the shelter.

Because of COVID-19, the shelter will have a limited capacity with socially distanced cots.

I am in Cut Off La. which is in Southern Lafourche parish and I am expecting to see the eye pass over me here. I will post updates about conditions here in my area.

At 8:21 am the wind is pretty steady about 30-35 mph with some gusts I would guess are about 50mph. Only had a bit of rain so far but conditions have worsened since I hit the floor around 5:30 am.

New St Charles Parish shelters of last resort opened-
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - St. Charles Parish officials announced Sunday (Aug. 29) the opening of two Hurricane Ida shelters of “last resort.”

West Bank parish residents who feel unsafe staying in their homes will be permitted inside the Edward A. Dufresne Community Center at 274 Judge Edward A. Dufresne Parkway. East Bank parish residents seeking shelter should hurry to the Harry Hurst Middle School gymnasium at 170 Road Runner Lane in Destrehan.

The officials advised all parish residents who live in trailers, mobile homes or other substandard structures to take refuge in one of the shelters.
