Dr. Navin Joshi, USNews, 26 March 2023. At least 23 people have died, 4  missing, and dozens have been injured as tornadoes and severe thunderstorms struck Mississippi late Friday night.

A father and his little girl are also included in the dead. According to the state emergency management agency, the speed of the tornado was more than 100 miles (160 km) per hour. This tornado left a trail of terrible damage.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has confirmed 23 dead and dozens more injured and 4 missing due to last night’s tornadoes through multiple messages on Twitter. Several local and state search and rescue teams are working since morning to assist the affected and search and rescue the missing.

It is reported that the maximum impact of this tornado has been seen in Rolling Fork and Silvar City, a small town with a population of 1,800 people. A man had taken shelter here along with his wife and three children. The tornado ravaged the place, resulting in the death of the father and his daughter. While his wife and two other children have been taken to the hospital.

In addition, the Coroner’s Office in Carroll County confirmed three deaths in a destroyed home in Rolling Fork and two deaths in Silver City in Humphreys County. But none of the victims have been named. Search and rescue teams are on standby in Rolling Fork. People trapped in Silver City are also being searched.

It can be seen in the pictures of this tornado that entire buildings have been left in rubble and many cars have been overturned. Many people got buried under the debris in the dark of night.

Governor Tate Reeve said in a tweet, ‘Many people in MS Delta need your prayers and God’s protection tonight. We have activated medical aid. Search and rescue operations are ongoing, with more ambulances and other emergency assets being mobilized for those affected.
