DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WMC) -

DeSoto County officials have closed Northern Kelly Road due to a potential dam breach of the Delta Crest Subdivision Lake.

Northern Kelly Road has been closed from north of Delta Crest to south of Mississippi Highway 304.

The road was closed on the recommendation from the Mississippi Department of Environmental Equality.

The potential breach is not believed to pose an immediate threat to life or property in the area, but the MDEQ believes Kelly Road would be impacted if a breach happens.

The county government said they do not have the ability to fix the dam because it is owned by the Delta Crest Subdivision Property Owners Association and it does not pose a threat to life or property.
