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.

Hancock County info 

Stella Schramm asks:

Is there any news on Hancock county (especially the beach front communities)? Are roads from Hattiesburg to Waveland and Bay St. Louis open?

Business editor Lisa Monti lives in Bay St. Louis says there is insignificant damage there. She is currently driving to the paper on DeBuys Road between Gulfport and Biloxi. She's passed a couple traffic lights in Long Beach and Gulfport that were out with police directing traffic. Folks are raking their yards or using a lawnmower to clean up. She saw one person getting their American flag back up the flag pole. Lisa also noted a lack of rubbernecking, too.

I'm not sure there are enough people around to rubberneck.
