Powerful tornadoes swept through Mississippi, obliterating at least one town and killing almost two dozen people, with the death toll expected to rise. The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency deployed search and rescue teams to help victims, confirming that 23 people had died, four were missing, and dozens were injured. Rolling Fork was essentially wiped out, according to its mayor. The National Weather Service issued an alert urging people to take cover immediately. Meteorologists had warned of the potential risks up to a week in advance, while experts had noted the increased risk due to vulnerable infrastructure. Earlier that day, a car was swept away by heavy rains in southwestern Missouri, killing two passengers.
