*We are continually working with non profit and faith based organizations from across the country that are now here in our county to assist in disaster relief. We are working to address any needs that our disaster volunteer coordination center receives as quickly as possible.  If you have a need such as someone to tarp your roof, tree clearing and removal from your home and property, food, water or shelter please call the Emergency Operations Center at 662-469-8919 during the hours of 7am to 5pm. You can also email needs as well to storminfo@desotocountyms.gov or message us here. Please include your Name, Address, Phone Number, and Specific Needs. 


*Our Sheriff’s Department has extra deputies on patrol in the affected areas to keep watch and assist with traffic. 


*Our Road Department is working hard to clear trees and debris from the roadways and right a ways. 


 *The power crews have done an amazing job restoring power. Only 13 homes remain without power out of the remaining homes that can receive power in both the North Central and Entergy Service area. 


We are thankful for all the hard work that our county citizens have done helping each other during this time and for the outpouring of support from groups and agencies from across the country!
