More rain possible for areas hit by weekend floods


GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Forecasters say there could be more rain this week in parts of south Mississippi hit with flash flooding over the weekend.

Heavy rainfall over the weekend caused flooding in areas including Long Beach, Gulfport and Biloxi.

Authorities said some areas of Gulfport recorded more than 6 inches of rain Sunday.

William Harold, a Gulfport resident, said 2 inches of water came inside his house when water inundated his neighborhood.

Gulfport firefighters had to rescue stranded motorists, including some on U.S. 90.

The American Red Cross sent staff and volunteers to pass out cleanup supplies and authorities gave out sandbags.

The National Weather Service says some of the same areas could get more rain at times throughout the week.
