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

Tree down 

Sun Herald reporter Patrick Peterson reports:

"We were so lucky, I can't complain," said Dot Strangi, 1537 Miller St. in Biloxi, who rode out the storm in her home two blocks off the beach. She was not afraid in the home, where she's lived since 1958. It has withstood "Camille and all the others."

"Usually, I have the whole family here," she said.

A tree in her front yard was one of the few signs of damage in her neighborhood. The fallen tree slightly damaged a trailer that contained the belongings of her daughter and son-in-law Matt and Janell Broussard, who live in low-lying Point Cadet.

Her son-in-law will have to cut up the tree to free the trailer.

"He brought his chain saw," she said.
