Mississippi Tornado Disaster- #1625 - "Utter Obliteration" - Samaritan's Purse

A Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief Unit is on its way to Mississippi, where a tornado almost a mile wide tore through the state on Saturday, killing at least 10 people and causing significant injuries and damage. Businesses and homes in at least 20 counties were severely damaged or reduced to splinters as the storm raked cities from the central western border with Louisiana northeastward to Alabama. At least 30 people were injured and taken to area hospitals. The Samaritan's Purse team will begin assessing the damage when they arrive, and determine the best areas for our crews to work. Our staff and volunteers will then begin to help by nailing tarps to weatherproof surviving rooftops, cutting and removing downed trees, helping families salvage priceless mementos, and hauling off debris so people can rebuild.  Read more about what has happened to the community and how you can help.......
