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.

This time from Italy 

Michael Carron

My wife Susan and I live in Italy, but have a home in Bay St. Louis and one on Bayou Talla off the Jourdan River. As our friends evacuated Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian we depended on the Sun Herald and your blog to keep us connected. Although we haven't talked to anyone yet (we are 7 hours ahead of CDT) we've begun to relax. I'm still watching the radar and IR loops and the folks in eastern Alabama and west Florida are still getting hit badly. All of us from the Coast know what they are going through and that it isn't a matter of "if," but "when" for us. Thanks for your great service.
