MISSISSIPPI- The tornadoes that hit Mississippi on Friday night were incredibly powerful, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. According to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, at least 23 people were killed and dozens more were injured. Four people are still missing and the agency has warned that more casualties could be reported as search and rescue teams continue to comb through the rubble.

One of the worst-hit areas was the town of Rolling Fork in Sharkey County, where 13 people have been confirmed dead. The town is located about 60 miles north of Jackson and was devastated by the tornado. Mayor Eldridge Walker described the scene as one of complete devastation, with rubble and debris scattered all around.


The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is working closely with local and state search and rescue teams to ensure that all those who are missing are found and that those who were injured receive the necessary medical attention. The agency is also working to provide support to the families of those who were killed and to help those who have been affected by the tornadoes to begin the process of rebuilding.

In the wake of this tragedy, the Mississippi Delta is in desperate need of support and assistance. Donations of money, supplies, and time are urgently needed to help those affected by the tornadoes as they begin to pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives.
