MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, has issued water contact advisories for five sampling stations.

• Station 2 — Buccaneer State Park (near State Park Road)

• Station 3 — Waveland (from Oak Boulevard to Farve Street)

• Station 5 — Pass Christian West (from Fort Henry Avenue to Elliot Street)

• Station 10B — East Courthouse Road Beach (from Courthouse Road east to
