“#Snowpocalypse2017” may be a memory on the Coast of a dusting of snow on some rooftops, but some ice may still be lingering.
Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy said the county’s road department used preemptive measure to keep ice from being a problem, especially on the county’s bridges.
“The road department went out Friday night after the rain had stopped and they put some brine and slag on a lot of the bridges,” he said. “We picked the bridges that are some of the most-heavily traveled and we continued to monitor them through the night, but there may be some isolated spots here and there where this is some ice.”
The Mississippi Department of Transportation is reporting some icy roads and areas in Jackson County.
