Tornado: Four people were missing after the storm hit Silver City, a town of 200 people in Western Mississippi.
A tornado and strong thunderstorms swept across Mississippi late on Friday, killing at least 23 people and injuring dozens. The twister left a trail of destruction for more than 100 miles.
In a series of tweets, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said four people were still missing after the storm hit Silver City, a town of 200 people.
The death count is expected to change, it said.
There were also search and rescue teams in Rolling Fork, a town of 1,700 people that took the brunt of the tornado.
Brandy Showah told CNN, “I’ve never seen anything like this.” It was a great small town.
She said her grandmother’s house was damaged.
She added that some people next to her grandmother are still trapped in their homes. “My friend was trapped in her home a few houses down, but we got her out,” Showah said.
There were a lot of people trapped in their homes in Rolling Fork, United Cajun Navy President Todd Terrell told ABC News. He’s part of a team of volunteer rescuers.
He compared it to a tornado that killed 161 people in Joplin, Missouri, in 2011.
Storm chasers and observers reported at least 24 tornadoes to the National Weather Service on Friday night and Saturday morning. There were reports from Mississippi’s west edge to Alabama’s center.
News networks posted pictures of entire buildings in rubble and cars turned upside down as people climbed through the debris in the dark.
Tate Reeve tweeted, “Many in the MS Delta need your prayers and God’s protection tonight.”
“We’ve activated medical support, including more ambulances and other emergency assets. Search and rescue is on.”
