City Public Works Crews Cleaning Drains In Preparation For Heavy Rains

DeSoto County,Ms

City crews were spending their day Wednesday cleaning storm drains in both Horn Lake and Southaven getting ready for the expected heavy rains that have been forecasted for later this week.

North Mississippi could get as much as 5 inches of rain over the next few days, all thanks to whats left of hurricane Harvey as it works it way north.

“We want to be pro-active and be as prepared as possible”. said Horn Lake Mayor Allen Latimer.

“You can only hope for the best when it comes to mother nature”.

Citizens in flood prone areas are still encouraged to take precautions against potential property loss. All citizens are reminded to not drive across roadways covered in flood waters. Remember: DON’T DROWN, TURN AROUND!
