After days of whipping wind and heavy rain, life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast is slowly returning to normal as residents return home and begin cleaning up from Hurricane Isaac.

Hancock County Supervisor David Yarborough said Friday that two of three shelters in the county have been shut down and residents were beginning to go home.

Some roads were still closed, but flood waters were receding.

Hancock County Emergency Management Agency director, Brian Adams, said it was still too early to assess damages because there was still flooding in some neighborhoods near rivers from heavy rain dumped north of the coast.

The remnants of Isaac were still causing rain and flooding in areas of central and south Mississippi.
