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.
