Governor Tate Reeves has issued a State of Emergency for Pontotoc, DeSoto, Tishomingo, Lee, and Tunica Counties as well as other areas of the state affected by the severe storms which occurred over the weekend.

The storms resulted in the death of one Mississippi resident. Current assessments show that 182 homes, eight businesses, and six farms were damaged.

“It is heartbreaking to see the destruction caused by this storm,” Reeves said. “My prayers are with the families impacted. I want everyone to know that the state of Mississippi stands ready to support these communities in every way possible as they seek to rebuild and recover.”

Reeves directed all state agencies to discharge their emergency responsibilities as deemed necessary and set forth in Mississippi’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan.
