Slabbed checking in for Mr CLS: “Everything is gone…”

Obviously we did well here in the southern part of the state. Nowdy was closer to the action but also should be fine. Not everyone is doing so well though as Elizabeth Crisp of the Clarion Ledger reports:

Ten deaths have been reported: five in Choctaw County, four in Yazoo County and one in Holmes County.

On Sunday, nearly 80 Mississippi National Guardsmen patrolled Choctaw and Yazoo counties – the areas hardest hit. Dozens of state troopers also went to the affected areas to help.

The storms are being called the state’s worst natural disaster since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

It is our hope the Slabbed Nation steps up for these folks as we welcome the newest members to the brotherhood. I’ll see if I can get some info on some worthy local charities.

  1. This is a terrible, unexpected situation for these unfortunate people.

    In terms of insurance tom-foolery, the folks with nothing left (or clearly totaled homes) can take the slightest solace knowing they should not have problems getting their claims paid. It’s the people who had their homes partially damaged, especially structural damage, who will have to be on the lookout for the likes of the old Haag shuck and jive. I wish them well.

  2. I pray FEMA has the checks to find the uninsured people immediate rental housing until the Feds declare a diaster situation in the area.I’m all for a national wind policy to supplement the flooding policy and the hell with the insurance companies!

  3. Just checking in to say that all is well here. A few limbs in the yard from wind here but too far from tornado’s path for any damage.
