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.

Gulf Coast Medical Center to re-open shortly 

Hurricane Ivan left a mark on Gulf Coast Medical Center, but it's being called temporary and the facility will open Thursday night at 7. The 144-bed acute care hospital located on DeBuys Road just down the street from our paper, closed Tuesday as everyone anticipated a potentially large impact from Hurricane Ivan. Patients transferred at that time will start returning Friday.
