Hancock County reaching out 

Bay St. Louis Mayor Eddie Favre just talked to a WLOX reporter about post-storm evacuation plans to reach those residents who don't have the transportation to get to shelters and distribution sites. Emergency officials are stocking up on ice, water and MREs and passing it out to people as they enter neighborhoods. They've also been able to transport people by school buses to shelters. Favre said there are still neighborhoods they haven't been able to reach, like the Cedar Point area, but they are working diligently to do so. -Sara
