Pearl River County Emergency Operations Center officers said on Friday that county road crews have begun debris removal in the areas impacted by the Christmas Day Tornado.
Road crews are asking that any new piles be separated into two piles: one of vegetation and one of all other storm debris, said Tony Bounds, EOC public relations spokesman.
“If you have already piled debris, please disregard this message. This applies to any new debris piles. Road crews will begin mulching the vegetation debris to ease in pick up efforts,” said Bounds.
Please remember: Debris piles should be accessible to crews from the roadway, where possible, but piles should not interfere with the flow of traffic or be placed in the ditch. Debris piles should not be placed near meters, poles or fire hydrants. No hazardous materials should be placed in storm debris piles.
Further updates will follow as they become available.
