MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIV., Miss. (WCBI) – They need to take a moment to rest and recover. Mississippi State University is hosting the staging area for the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. That’s what’s up with all of those tents you may have seen if you drive by the Palmeiro Center. This is where emergency crews are being fed and can take a break before heading back into the tornado zones throughout our area.
Student athletes have also hosted victims of the storms on campus with meals and shower facilities. Faculty and students are part of an army of volunteers spread out across the counties in need.
