The Sun Herald's publishing plans


The Sun Herald will produce an Extra Edition on Wednesday that will be delivered free of charge to hurricane shelters across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We will leave sufficient copies so that anyone who would wish to receive a copy may drop by the shelter nearest to them to get theirs.

Due to the approach of Hurricane Ivan, normal home delivery will not be possible.

As soon as it is possible, we will resume our regular schedule of publication, but obviously that will be impacted by the storm.

Every day that we are unable to produce and deliver a paper to subscribers we intend to produce papers that will be delivered to storm shelters. We have in place a number of contingency plans to continue publication should our printing facilities be impaired.

Diamondhead report 

A friend of mine who evacuted to Starkville has heard about her home and that of another friend who lives in Diamondhead:

friends called to say that i have a decent (6-inch diameter) branch down on my fence but that it has not damaged the fence and they were even nice enough to move it off the fence for me. other than that the roof and the house are fine, the clematis bloom even stuck around. i have no power but coast electric is running around fixing things.

magee has "10 oak leaves" down in the yard and possibly a bit of eave off the house, but no other damage.
