...HURRICANE WARNING IS CANCELLED...
...STORM SURGE WARNING IS CANCELLED...

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED
    - Bay St Louis
    - Diamondhead
    - Waveland

* WIND
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Below tropical storm force wind
        - Peak Wind Forecast: 10-15 mph with gusts to 20 mph

    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST 
      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for wind 58 
      to 73 mph
        - The wind threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical 
          storm force.
        - PREPARE: Last minute efforts to protect life and property 
          should now be complete. The area remains subject to 
          significant wind damage.
        - ACT: Now is the time to shelter from dangerous wind.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
        - Potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.

* STORM SURGE
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Life-threatening storm surge possible
        - Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 4-7 feet 
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - Window of concern: Begins early this morning

    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST 
      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for storm 
      surge flooding greater than 6 feet above ground
        - The storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Shelter against life-threatening storm surge flooding 
          of greater than 6 feet above ground.
        - PREPARE: All ordered evacuations should be complete. 
          Evacuees should be in shelters well away from storm surge 
          flooding.
        - ACT: Remain sheltered in a safe location. Do not venture 
          outside. Move to upper floors to escape rising water if 
          necessary.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Unfolding
        - Potential impacts from the main surge event are unfolding.

* FLOODING RAIN
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: No additional significant rainfall 
          forecast

    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST 
      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for 
      moderate flooding rain
        - The flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from 
          the previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for 
          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues 
          are possible.
        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area 
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take 
          action may result in serious injury or loss of life. 

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant
        - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations 
          and rescues.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with 
          swifter currents and overspill their banks in a few places, 
          especially in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, 
          creeks, canals, bayous, and ditches overflow.
        - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken 
          foundations. Several places may experience expanded areas 
          of rapid inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and 
          poor drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on 
          moving water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow. 
          Driving conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge 
          closures.

* TORNADO
    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: 
        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST 
      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for a few 
      tornadoes
        - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the 
          previous assessment.
        - PLAN: Emergency plans should continue to include possible 
          tornadoes.
        - PREPARE: Stay within your shelter keeping informed of the 
          latest tornado situation.
        - ACT: Move quickly to the safest place within your shelter 
          if a tornado warning is issued.

    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited
        - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the 
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with 
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, 
          chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or 
          overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, 
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown 
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.
