Published 1:17 pm Monday, March 27, 2023

The City of Picayune is offering to help, in response to the devastating tornado that left approximately 26 people dead (according to MEMA) in the Delta town of Rolling Fork area.

Residents and the community of Picayune know all too well the ramifications that disastrous weather can leave on a city. Rolling Fork is wounded by this EF-4 tornado that occurred this Friday night, and Picayune hopes it can assist in healing the aftermath of this disaster. With that being said, Picayune City Hall is beginning a tornado relief drive, for those affected by the tornado in North Mississippi.
