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.

Eye on Ivan



A South Mississippi hurricane journal


Wednesday, September 15, 2004

From the Northwest 

Sharon Premo from Oregon sends:

I lived in Gulfport for 2 years. I went through Hurricane Frederick. I lived one block from the community center on Finley St. I have friends that still live there on the street halfway down, two-story house. I remember the waiting for it to hit shore. Went to stay at Tica's mom's house out by the airport-could here a thud every once in a while during eye of storm -- found out it was pine trees had fallen inches from the window were we were, and inches from the car.

I pray for every one there. . . .
