As Mississippians observed the one-month anniversary of the historic tornadoes, severe storms and flooding that took place April 15-28, federal and state disaster officials said that everything is being done to make sure assistance is reaching those who need it.
“Mississippians are making the best of a terrible situation,” said Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Womack. “People in the affected areas are reaching out to each other and to the state of Mississippi for help. We’re partnering with FEMA and other state and federal agencies to help survivors find and use the resources that are available to them as they put their lives and communities back together after this devastating disaster.”
