VICKSBURG, MS (WLBT) - A landslide has been discovered in Vicksburg, forcing Lady Luck casino owners to shut down the main entrance.

Warrenton Road is completely blocked off and signs have been put up for customers to come through a separate entrance.

Assistant public works director, Jeff Richardson says when you live in Vicksburg, landslides become a common problem this time of year.

He says, “That’s part of the stuff that happens in Vicksburg. We have a couple hundred feet of soil which is good until water gets into it and then it moves. And it’s trying to level it out. It’s just the nature of the soil”
