On March 22, 2022, a large tornado touched down in the New Orleans area, with significant damage in Arabi. Be prepared for roads and services to be closed or inadequate for the next several weeks.

Follow-up on tornado impacts 4/6/22:
We have received reports that the shoulder of US 90 between the Mississippi/Louisiana state line and New Orleans is riddled with debris and other "junk", thereby causing a cyclist to take the lane. The timeline for clearing the shoulders is unknown. In the meantime, exercise extreme caution on this stretch.

Between Pass Christian and Biloxi on map #88-89, it has been reported that the boardwalk path is covered with wind-drifted sand in many locations. It is not advised to follow Beach Blvd./US 90. If a boardwalk is not navigable, it is suggested to follow the many residential roads directly north and parallel to the boardwalk. For more info, the Tri-Hard bike shop in Ocean Springs has proven to be a great resource for local routing.
