SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

June 1, marks the first official day of hurricane season, and Harrison County emergency managers are warning everyone to be prepared.

"Unfortunately, people have a mindset, I survived Camille, I survived Katrina; I'll survive the next one," said Captain Greg Federico with the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.

Although the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, better known as NOAA, is predicting a below average hurricane season, these professionals say all it takes is one.

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The Hancock County Emergency Operation Center has been without a permanent place to call home since Hurricane Katrina nearly nine years ago. In fact, the EOC staff has been uprooted and bounced around to six different temporary locations since the storm.

Although the new EOC building now under construction on Highway 603 in Kiln won't be finished before the 2014 hurricane season begins on Sunday, it will be ready to open before the season ends.
