SHANNON, Miss. (WTVA) - Some residents in Shannon are experiencing a smelly situation.

Residents along Willow Street are experiencing what appears to be sewage leaking near residences and along the roadway.

One mother says this is a safety hazard for her three children.

"There's water that stands and you can smell the smell," said Allison Mask. "It sounded like there was a water leak from under my trailer, so I told them and they came and checked it out but never said it was a water leak."

Mayor Ronnie Hallmark says the city has sent workers out to begin fixing the sewage leaking problem.
