WATCH: North Miss. survivors look to recover, respond after deadly tornado
ROLLING FORK, Miss. (WLOX) - WLOX has a team on the ground in northern Mississippi where tornados devastated the area over the weekend.
According to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, 25 people have died with dozens injured. Gov. Tate Reeves and President Joe Biden have issued emergency declarations.
Several response teams are in the impacted areas doing what they can to help.
Reeves was out surveying the damage Sunday.
Stronger and better is the ultimate goal for those in Rolling Fork as restoration and recovery efforts are underway.
The tornado knocked out the cell tower and damaged the AT&T communications building. That means many people are without cell signal, so getting that up and running is paramount.
We also spoke with survivors of the storm. One woman hid in her closet for two hours as the storms hit.
Against all of this devastation, our team is still finding stories of hope and people coming together to rebuild. Jaimee Dorris spoke to one man who said he’s taking it one day at a time.
