Disaster Relief: Providing shelter, food, and water. At least one person was killed and nearly two dozen injured in storms that swept through Mississippi on Sunday night, and more than 50 million across the Southeast face the threat of more severe weather, including tornadoes, on Monday. A storm system spawned a reported tornado late Sunday in Mississippi, leaving injuries and structural damage around Bay Springs and Louin in Jasper County. Now, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency is assessing damage from overnight storms, the agency said, noting more than 49,000 customers have no power in the central part of the state. They are among nearly a half million from Texas and Oklahoma to Tennessee who remain in the dark amid record-breaking heat after several rounds of storms last week.
Disaster Relief: Providing shelter, food and water to help the people of Rolling Fork, Mississippi and all counties affected by the storm. Rolling Fork a town of fewer than 2,000 residents lost everything, and the city is gone. At least 24 people were killed, dozens injured and four missing after powerful storms and at least one tornado pummeled the Southeast on Friday night, ripping roofs off homes, nearly leveling some neighborhoods and knocking out power for thousands. Many buildings and houses in the city were leveled by the storm. People have never seen anything like this. And Jeremy McCoy, the constable of Yazoo County, who went to neighboring Rolling Fork to assist with tornado damage, said the town now “looks like a landfill.” We are praying for those who lost loved ones.

More neighborhoods in Jackson, Mississippi were starting to flood Saturday as the swollen Pearl River may soon reach its highest point in decades, city officials said.
Authorities urged people in mandatory evacuation zones in Mississippi's capital to leave their homes or ask for help evacuating. "Please, please get out before dark tonight," Gov. Tate Reeves said at a news conference, addressing hundreds of people whom officials have asked to evacuate near the river in the Jackson area. As of Saturday night, the Pearl River, already moderately flooding some neighborhoods around northeast Jackson, had risen to nearly 36 feet and nearly 8 feet above flood stage.
