A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Tens of thousands of volunteers from
across the country poured into Mississippi and Louisiana to help
people recover from Hurricane Katrina. Now, some are finding their
help is no longer welcome.
God's Katrina Kitchen, a faith-based relief operation that has served more than one (m) million meals to the storm's victims and the volunteers who helped them, has been forced to move twice due to neighborhood complaints.
Kentuckian Greg Porter who founded the Kitchen hasn't found a new home for it.
Officials say the roadside-tent operation may have to close at the end of the month.
Similarly, free medical clinics staffed by volunteer doctors have run into resistance from local physicians struggling to resuscitate their practices.
