The Grenada County Emergency Management Agency is warning citizen to use caution as remnants of Hurricane Ida are expected to pass through Grenada County beginning tomorrow, Monday, Aug. 30.
EMA Director Trebia Rodgers said what is left of Hurricane Ida when it arrives in North Mississippi will hit Grenada County.
“Expect anything from four to six inches of rain when this storm arrives,” Rodgers said. “We will see what’s left of the eye up here around 10 p.m. Monday night. We will get a lot of rain even before the eye arrives.”
Rodgers said county residents should use today to prepare themselves for tomorrow. On Sunday afternoon, Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm.
“The weather will be severe, so be prepared,” Rodgers said. “Be prepared to take care of yourself for up to three days. If this is anything like Hurricane Katrina, it will take first responders more time to get where they need to be.”
According to Rodgers, the City of Grenada Safe Room located on 260 Mondy Rd., is expected to open prior to severe weather affecting this area.
