West Point residents can expect to be greeted by the familiar sirens of warning as the state partakes in a statewide tornado drill scheduled to occur 9:15 a.m. Wednesday.
As November creeps up, so too does the frequency of tornadoes that will inevitably leave their marks on Mississippi’s wide open terra.
According to a press release provided by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), between 1950 and 2012, 229 tornadoes struck in November alone.
“November is the biggest month for tornadoes,” said WP/Clay County Emergency Management Deupty Director Kerrie Gentry-Blissard.
