The location is Station 10 — Gulfport Central, which runs from Alfonso Drive east to the VA main entrance.
Advisories are currently in effect for Stations 8, 10, and 10B.
However, one advisory, issued April 18, has been lifted. It is Station 11A — Edgewater Beach, which extends from Debuys Road east to Edgewater Avenue.
