Casino damaged in storm, temporarily closed

NATCHEZ — A weekend storm has temporarily closed the Isle of Capri Casino in Natchez.

Isle spokeswoman Jill Alexander says the damage was sustained Friday night during a severe thunderstorm.

Alexander says the boat was hit with high wind, causing damage to the entry ramps as well as the backup generator.

She says the boat will continue to be closed for “a few more days” while repairs are made to the entry ramps.

The Isle of Capri Hotel will remain open.
