HARRISON COUNTY, (WAVE) – The Harrison County Highway Department has issued a travel warning for Monday night and Tuesday morning. 

According to the Highway Department, the County Highway Plow trucks have gone home, and will be back out beginning at 7:30 Tuesday morning. The department says the trucks will be plowing and salting the roads, but because of the low temperatures, the salt may not work.

  • Refrain from all travel
  • Comply with necessary emergency measures
