Governor Phil Bryant signed a State of Emergency for the severe storms that occurred on April, 30 2017.
The State of Emergency is an administrative tool that allows local governments to request state assistance for response and recovery associated with the storms.
Damage assessments for the affected areas will be conducted by MEMA and local officials as areas become accessible.
MEMA will provide updates as information becomes available. The best way to get up-to-date information during this event is to “Like” MEMA on Facebook, or “Follow” MEMA on twitter @msema.
