Flash Flood Watch and Wind Advisory | Weather
The National Weather Service in Jackson issued a Wind Advisory for Jones County and most of the state today effective until 6 p.m. this evening. Sustained winds of 25-30 mph and gusts to 45 mph will be felt throughout the area.
“These wind speeds can bring down small trees and limbs and make driving conditions hazardous particularly for high profile vehicles, noted Jones County Emergency Management Executive Director Lance Chancellor. “Residents should secure outdoor items that can be blown around such as trash cans and lawn furniture.” Chancellor added, “We still have trees that were weakened during Hurricane Katrina that may fall during high wind events like we will experience today. It’s hard to believe that we are still dealing with the effects of Katrina, but it’s certainly the case.”
