Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, Miss. -  The following news release is from the City of Jackson:
The City of Jackson is preparing for severe weather events Monday through Tuesday. According
to the National Weather Service, potential multiple rounds of severe weather is of concern for the

Jackson area:
- Possibility of large hail
- Rain fall levels 1" - 3" that could cause Flash Flooding
- Possibility of Pearl River to rise back above flood stage as rainfall continues
- Possibility of severe tornadoes

“Public Works crews are currently out, assessing the low-lying areas for flooding, and are
monitoring river levels,” said the City of Jackson’s Emergency Management Coordinator,
Warren Miller. “Public Works, along with the assistance of our Police and Fire Departments will
continue to monitor flood-prone areas to ensure the safety of citizens.”

City Officials are asking citizens to report any flooding on streets to the City’s 311System, so
crews can properly block these streets. Citizens are also encouraged to sign up for the city’s
CodeRed alert system to receive notifications regarding emergencies by visiting the city’s
webpage at www.jacksonms.gov.

“We’re also encouraging the public to tune into the NOAA Weather Radio, and for everyone to
ensure they have new batteries,” said Miller.

City Officials will continue to monitor weather conditions and provide up-to-date information as
they become available.
