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

National Guard moving in 

Sun Herald military reporter Patrick Peterson reports:

About 70 National Guardsmen from the 223rd Engineer Battalion in North Mississippi will arrive in Jackson County before noon to help with traffic control. Little flooding or debris in roads was reported in Jackson County.

Mississippi Guardsmen will likely have a short stay in South Mississippi, since electric power will be restored quickly. However, they might be used in Mobile, if needed, said Maj. Gen. Harold Cross, Mississippi adjutant general.

Gov. Haley Barbour was scheduled to arrive on in Gulfport at 2 p.m. and travel by National Guard helicopter to Pascagoula for a 2:30 p.m. press conference at the Emergency Operations Center.
