More 2nd Street concerns 

I retreated to Jackson for the storm and hope and pray that everyone in Gulfport is safe. Up here there is a light rain falling; the news predicts 80-90 mph winds later this evening. Has anyone given any reports regarding the status of water on Second Street in Gulfport? I live there as do several family members and friends and was wondering what the water level reports are in that area. Any info you can provide will be much appreciated. Take care. -Michael Hewes Michael, all I can tell you is, my last report was water breaking north of 90 in many areas of Gulfport. If anyone out there knows about 2nd street and can get through, e-mail to
