Harrison County evacuation order -- UPDATED 

There is are mandatory evacuation orders in effect for areas A and B. If you're not sure which zone you're in, the NOAA site has a searchable tool to assist. They can also be found at the Harrison County Civil Defense Web site and on page 55 of the BellSouth phone book. Officials also said the only reason that zone C was not evacuated was because of the hospitals in it which need to stay open to care for critically ill patients. All others have been discharged.
