Island View Casino Resort Reopens
Island View Casino Resort reopened for business this morning at 8:30 a.m., after closing last Sunday due to Hurricane Gustav. Emeril’s Gulf Coast Fish House, located in Island View, will reopen tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. Highway 90, where Island View’s main entrance is located, is also now opened across Harrison County.
“It is a great relief to see that the Mississippi Gulf Coast seems to have fared well overall in Hurricane Gustav. We have made such tremendous strides in moving forward and rebuilding our community since Hurricane Katrina struck three years ago, but Gustav served as a reminder that we must remain vigilant with our hurricane preparation plans and remember to take storm season seriously,” said Rick Carter, co-owner of Island View Casino Resort. Carter added, “The Island View property sustained minimal, superficial damage, mostly to the landscaping that faces the Gulf of Mexico. We are truly thankful that the resort is in good shape, our friends, family and team members are, to the best of our knowledge, safe and that we are now able to redirect our attention to reopening the hotel, restaurants and casino at the resort as soon as possible.”
