Gulfport flooding fix in the works

GULFPORT — When Gulfport residents hear rain is in the forecast, they worry! Just one hour of heavy rain can flood streets in the waterfront town, especially during the rainy summer months or hurricane season. The good news is a flooding fix is happening right now!

Construction crews are tearing up portions of Gulfport Boulevard, the main drag through town. The pipes they are adding underground are twice as big as the ones currently being used, which should significantly help take flood water off the street.
