Hurricane Harvey has been upgraded to a category 4 and is wrecking havoc across the U.S.
The National Weather Service said Mississippi is seeing the potential for flooding.
“We can still expect the potential for flooding if the storm tracks through our area if not, the heavy stream could miss us,” said Thomas Winesett with the National Weather Service. “We are still a little uncertain at this time, but can’t rule out flooding from any heavy rain that we do get.”
Winesett said Mississippi residents could potentially see Harvey’s effect take place in the southern portion of the state.
“If Harvey were to move through here it would likely start in the south, southwest portion of the state and then spread kind of towards the northeast.”
