Security tight at LTCC

HATTIESBURG (WDAM) - Shortly before 8:30 Thursday morning, WDAM's cameras had to be put into position and all of our gear checked hours before the arrival of former first lady Laura Bush.

Security is as tight at the Lake Terrace Convention Center ahead of Mrs. Bush's visit.

Director Rick Taylor says "we are ready" for anything.  The bomb squad from the city of Biloxi was also on the scene.
