CONSIDER THIS: Helping after Hurricane Florence

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Mississippians know what it means to be affected by a major hurricane. The people in North Carolina were battered by Hurricane Florence and now North and South Carolinians are impacted by rivers and streams that are setting record levels of flooding due to days of intense rainfall.

WLBT has partnered with the American Red Cross to provide information on how options to help people dealing with the effects of the storm. You can go to wlbt.com to learn more or you can simply text the word Florence to 90999 and $10 will be donated specifically to Florence relief efforts.

Mississippi has always been known as a state with people who care and are willing to give when others are in need. I’m sure the same thing will happen this time when it comes to helping everyone affected by Hurricane Florence. It reinforces who we are and it’s one more reason we are Mississippi Strong.
