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

More on the National Guard 

Sun Herald military reporter Patrick Peterson files:

Maj. Gen. Harold Cross, adjutant general of the Mississippi National Guard, said that 1,200 Guardsmen will form the first mobilization in response to Hurricane Ivan, which was on a track to make landfall just east of Pascagoula.

More Guardsmen could be called if needed.

Some eleven National Guard aircraft, mostly helicopters, were availble for hurricane relief operations. Cross has put a National Guard plane on alert for the possible evacuation of residents of a Coast nursing home, who found other means of getting to safety before the plane was needed.

Two Guard helicopters at the Air National Guard center are slated to survey hurricane damage across the Coast on Thursday, as soon as the winds subside.
