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.

Fire in downtown Gulfport 

Gulfport Fire Department Chief Pat Sullivan reports that his firemen put out a fire at a downtown business at about 5 p.m. Quick Cuts Barber and Beauty, 3002 31st Ave., was heavily damaged inside. It's part of a strip mall of three other business, but the fire was contained to the barber shop. Initial reports say an overloaded electrical outlet looked like the cause of the blaze.
