Those impacted by the Friday night tornadoes that tore through the state are being encouraged to report any home or property damage to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.

Through the agency’s self-report tool, people can report damage and unmet needs to their local emergency management office. MEMA also encourages all residents who have sustained damage to file an insurance claim.

MEMA is also offering three shelter locations to those in need. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be offered at each.

  • National Guard Amory (19719 US 61, Rolling Fork, MS 39159)
  • Humphreys County Multipurpose Building (417 Silver City Rd., Belzoni, MS 39038)
  • Old Amory National Guard Building (101 S. 9th St., Amory, MS 38821)

As of Sunday afternoon, fatalities stood at 25 with dozens of others injured. That number is subject to change as search and rescue efforts continue.
