Additionally, hurricane watches extended out to Destin, Florida and High Island, Texas from the edges of the warning respectively. Early the next day, a tropical storm warning was issued for areas between Pascagoula, Mississippi and Destin, Florida. In response to the eastward movement of the hurricane, the hurricane watch and warning was discontinued for areas west of Morgan City, Louisiana. Additionally, the hurricane warning was extended eastward to Destin, Florida, a tropical storm warning was issued east of Destin to Apalachicola, Florida, and a tropical storm watch was declared for areas between Morgan City and Cameron, Louisiana.

Pascagoula, Mississippi

'''Pascagoula''' is a city in Jackson County (Jackson County, Mississippi), Mississippi. It is the principal city of the Pascagoula, Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area (Pascagoula metropolitan area), as a part of the Gulfport (Gulfport, Mississippi)–Biloxi (Biloxi, Mississippi)–Pascagoula, Mississippi Combined Statistical Area (Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula combined statistical area). The population was 26,200 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Jackson County (Jackson County, Mississippi).

Pascagoula is a major industrial city of Mississippi, along the Gulf Coast. Prior to World War II, the town was a sleepy fishing village of only about 5,000. The population exploded with the war-driven shipbuilding industry. Although the city's population seemed to peak in the late 1970s and early 1980s as Cold War defense spending was at its height, Pascagoula experienced some new growth and development in the years before Hurricane Katrina. Today, Pascagoula is home to the state’s largest employer, Ingalls Shipbuilding, owned by Huntington Ingalls Industries. Other major industries include one of the largest Chevron refineries in the country; Signal International, an oil platform builder; and Mississippi Phosphates.

Naval Station Pascagoula was located on Singing River Island, and was homeport to several Navy warships, as well as a large Coast Guard (United States Coast Guard) contingent. However, Naval Station Pascagoula was decommissioned as part of the 2005 BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) recommendations and ceased operations in 2006.

The city is served by three airports: Mobile Regional Airport, which is located in nearby Mobile, Alabama; the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, about west of Pascagoula; and the Trent Lott International Airport, located within Jackson County.

The mayor of the city is Jim Blevins.
