Based on information received from the National Weather Service this morning the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) has decided to take a "stand down with a heightened awareness stance" in regards to Invest 92L. This means although the state of Mississippi is not expected to take a direct hit everyone should closely monitor the storm for any changes. The coastal areas of the state may be impacted with increased rainfall over the next few days so flooding is a possibility and should be monitored locally. Please take this time to prepare your family (pets included) for any disaster that may happen such as tornadoes, flooding, winter storms, earthquakes, etc. Also begin discussing with your family about your possible deployment with the State Medical Response System should the need arise. Thank you for your continued interest in the State Medical Response System!
