Gov. Bryant declares state of emergency for severe weather

February 23, 2016

 

Pearl, Miss. – Gov. Phil Bryant issued a state of emergency today for all areas of the state that may be affected by severe weather. A potent storm system that has the potential for strong tornadoes, damaging winds, hail and heavy rain is expected to impact the state through Tuesday night.

 

The state of emergency is an administrative tool that allows local governments to request state assistance to assist with response and recovery associated with the storm recovery.

 

“All our citizens need to be prepared for this severe weather event,” Gov. Bryant said. “Everyone should know how to receive weather alerts and have an action plan to take shelter if severe weather strikes.”
