As Isaac moves across the Gulf of Mexico, Governor Phil Bryant is urging residents who decide to seek safer ground, to do so as early as possible.

"Our concern is that residents may decide to wait ‘til late to start leaving or moving from the area. That would you in the dark, in perhaps 60 mph winds, in the rain. Those are not the conditions you want to move your family forward."

Emergency officials are reminding residents to be alert to changing conditions, and evacuate when advised from flood-prone areas.  Families should bring important family documents, and have several days supply of water, non-perishable food and medicines.
