    I’ve seen devastating videos of rolling fork Mississippi I’m praying all those truckers involved made it out safe. Seen several trucks on top of one another praying for everyone’s safety. I cannot imagine how those feel who actually lived there. Please keep these folks in your prayers.

    I live in Vicksburg, about 30 some odd miles due south of Rolling Fork. Storm passed a tad north of us on to Rolling Fork which is a farming town in the flat delta of about 2500 residents, with Hwy 61 running through it still. A homey little town of which now for all purposes is totally destroyed, water tower toppled, 23 known dead and many more injured. Town is blocked off no access allowed except for official rescue and assistance. Pray for comfort and strength for this community as they are in need of everything and hurting right now.

    I hope it didn't take out Chuck's but Google says temporarily closed. If I'm thinking of the right place I had a lot of good times there growing up. I had cousins/family who lived there but no one anymore.

    Nothing left of Chucks save for the walk-in cooler the owner and some customers hid out in all else is gone.
