MEMA urges preparedness on Katrina anniversary
Six years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated the Mississippi Gulf Coast with 135 mph winds and up to 30 foot storm surges that killed 238 people. Today the recovery and rebuilding process continues for many Mississippians. Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Womack is asking residents to make sure they are prepared for the next storm as they remember Katrina.
“The first thing people need is a plan to know if they will need to evacuate their home and where they will go,” said Womack. “Saving lives is our top priority. We can rebuild homes but we can’t bring back those that lose their lives.”
