A band of severe weather tore through Mississippi Tuesday morning through Wednesday evening, leaving thirty-five fatalities and over 160 injuries in its wake. Governor Haley Barbour has declared a State of Emergency for the entire state, and President Barack Obama issued a federal disaster declaration for seven counties. MCVS is coordinating with the Mississippi Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (MSVOAD) to assemble disaster crews and respond to areas in need. Nine Volunteer Reception Centers have served affected communities since the deadly storms. MCVS has documented 3,588 volunteers serving over 13,159 hours since Friday, and is awaiting additional reports of volunteer response activity from several other counties.
