Mississippi (DR 4268)
Flood, Severe Storm - Mississippi
Five days after DR-4266 TX deployment, WSP USA Inspection Services was activated to provide inspection services in three Mississippi counties as a result of severe storms and flooding. A late evening deployment made same-day travel arrangements difficult. On March 31, 2016, 11 counties were added to the declaration. Two more were added on April 5; one was added on April 15. Inspectors were briefed on the potential for cellular service issues as well as road closures and detour issues. They were encouraged to report inaccessible areas to management for circulation to the team. During the 121 day task order assignment, inspectors completed over 4,000 inspections in 17 counties.
