Main Street welcomes resale store shooting
Shoppers can now find a treasure trove of bargains on everything from wall art and clothing to antiques at Tunica’s newest downtown business.
According to Dee Little, co-owner of Cliff & Dee’s Resale Shop, shoppers can expect savings of up to 75 percent off retail on a number of items sold both on consignment and a traditional retail basis.
A Mighty Wind
A strong burst of wind lifted and crumpled the canopy at Tunica Travel Center (Hajjeh’s) on Hwy. 61 during a thunderstorm just after noon last Saturday.
Gas leak under review
It should have been Friday the 13th instead of an ordinary Wednesday last week, when everything that could go wrong, seemingly did.
Within a 24-hour period that began at noon on July 18, Tunica’s volunteer firefighters evacuated at least one business in town during a gas leak scare, helped the North Tunica department douse a fire that erupted at the landfill, and answered a tricky medical call at a local casino.
Quake could shake things up in Delta
There is a 25-40 percent probability of a damaging earthquake occurring in the central U.S. within the next 50 years, scientists say. And Tunica is one of 19 Mississippi counties expected to be most impacted by future New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquakes, according to a 2009 analysis by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, “There is broad agreement in the scientific community that a continuing concern exists for a major destructive earthquake in the region,” despite reports that the New Madrid seismic zone may be shutting down.
In light of this conclusion, the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium in Memphis is stepping up public awareness and preparedness, in conjunction with Mississippi Emergency Management and other states.
