I've spent the last hour checking with evacuees from Mobile and the FL Panhandle. Here are their reports. Pensacola to Hattiesburg,MS. 159 miles-10 hours Gulfport,MS to Hattiesburg. 60 miles-6 hours. US 98 from Mobile is bumper to bumper here. US HWY 49 is also bumper to bumper going through Hattiesburg. I-59 from New Orleans seems to be doing a lot better. I estimated the traffic moving at 45 to 50 mph. Shelters have been opened in Natchez, Vicksburg and Brandon,MS. Hattiesburg has 2 shelters open. The main one being at the YMCA. On HWY11 just north of I-59 Exit 60. Don't wait to leave. It's taking a long time to move everyone.
