HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Many people in the Pine Belt are breathing a sigh of relief when it comes to the damage that could have been done by Hurricane Isaac. For the most part on Saturday, just a few of the roads in the area still had water over them, although many others in several locations were washed out. 

Saturday afternoon, Harold Tucker Road in Lamar County had just a few inches of water running across it. More than a dozen roads in that county sustained damage and will require work.

In Forrest County, the Black Creek at Brooklyn is falling. It crested about 4 p.m. Friday at 26.7 feet.

Some roads around the Camp Dantzler area were still underwater on Saturday morning.

Jones and perry counties were reporting no major damage from the storm. 
