State Treasurer Lynn Fitch is closely following Tropical Storm Isaac. Treasurer Fitch attended the MEMA briefing Sunday afternoon with Governor Phil Bryant, MEMA Director Robert Latham and other state officials.
Isaac is expected to impact the Mississippi Gulf Coast early Wednesday morning as a Category 1 Hurricane with projected rainfall amounts over 10 inches and winds in excess of 100 mph. Please follow all evacuation orders from your county and prepare for Isaac as if it will impact you directly.
Treasurer Fitch and her staff are focused on continuity planning and fiscal preparedness in preparation of Isaac’s landfall in Mississippi. She wants to make certain there is no disruption of debt service and ensure that the state can process payments and sustain business operations in the event of a natural disaster.
