Standing By in Mississippi

After more than 20 tornadoes touched down across the South yesterday, Region IV continues to monitor the developing situation in Mississippi.

After more than 20 tornadoes touched down across several states in the South, Regions IV and VI continue to monitor the developing situation in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas.

At this time, there are no requests for our team’s assistance from local emergency managers or the VOAD, but Team Rubicon volunteers remain on standby. We will provide an update as soon as we learn more, which will likely be just after the holiday. Stay safe and enjoy time with loved ones.

For members near the affected areas, take the time to ensure you’re deployment ready.
