Congressman Thompson’s Statement on Mississippi’s Storm Damage

 

WASHINGTON –   U.S. Representative Bennie G. Thompson released the following statement on Mississippi’s Storm Damage:

 

“We can never be prepared enough for these types of extreme weather conditions.  This storm claimed the life of an individual in Columbus, Miss., and I send my deepest condolences to that family.

 

At least 18 counties in my district were impacted by this storm, including the loss of homes as well as severe damage.  Part of my duty as the representative of the second congressional district of Mississippi, is to ensure the safety and security of the constituency in which I represent.

 

I plan to do everything in my power as Congressman to help  to alleviate the aftermath of the storm this past weekend.  With that being said I encourage you to report storm damage to your local emergency manager.”
