Eye on Ivan
Wednesday, September 15, 2004
Jimmy Boone, who is more than a little familiar with South Mississippi and The Sun Herald writes:
I used to live in Gulfport, and was a shelter manager at Gulfport High when
Andrew threatened. I also worked as a sports writer at the Sun-Herald. Now I
am in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and we are expecting 70 mph winds on Thursday.
One of my favorite places to eat is the White Cap in the small craft harbor.
I saw where you wrote Moses Pier was almost underwater. Is the White Cap in
any danger as well?
Glad for the Mississippi Coast that Ivan is starting to go more east, of
course feel sorry for the folks at Gulf Shores Alabama and Pensacola.
Our prayers continue for all.
I've been stuck here at the courthouse since that outing, but the reports I've heard is that the water hadn't really risen much more since that time. That's been a few hours ago since the last update from them, but that's the latest information I have. The White Cap was indeed boarded up and I took special notice of it when I was out there. It was OK then.
