Tornadoes devastate MS towns
Communities all over Mississippi are recovering this week from a massive storm system that moved into the state Sunday night.
Tunica County was under severe thunderstorm, tornado and flash flood watches and warnings most of Sunday afternoon and evening and into Monday morning, with bouts of heavy rain, some small hail and thunder, lightning, and one possible tornado sighting near Clayton occurring.
But the storm saved its wrath for northeast and central parts of the state. Tupelo, Louisville and Brandon were hit by tornadoes Monday afternoon; all three sustained significant damage to homes and businesses.

Casino jobs offer a chance for better pay, career advancement
Increased pay attracted Ann Spencer to employment at Splash Casino in 1992, she said. Nearly 22 years later, she said the gaming industry was indeed a catch.
“Before the casinos came, there really wasn’t an industry where you could work and get paid better,” she said.
Like Spencer, other long-term casino employees said the gaming industry brought high-paying career opportunities for those who were willing to ante up by working hard, sticking with it, and making sacrifices.
Before working in the gaming industry, Spencer was a bookkeeper and secretary at a local lumber company. She started at Splash as a receptionist but worked her way up to her current role of regional office manager at Bally’s and Resorts casinos.
