Through conference calls, Lauderdale County Emergency Management officials including the American Red Cross, have kept a close watch on what's left of Tropical Storm Humberto.

Though downgraded from a hurricane, the storm is expected to drench east Mississippi with several inches of rain, creating possible flooding problems.

Gordon Stewart, emergency services director for the Key Chapter of the American Red Cross, says volunteers are on stand-by, as is the emergency response vehicle. But for now, shelters will not be opened.

Partridge says emergency officials will monitor rain levels overnight and through Friday morning.
