CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) — A team from southwest Ohio is headed down to Mississippi after tornadoes tore through the state.

Matthew 25: Ministries announced on Saturday that the organization is assembling and traveling to Mississippi to assist in relief efforts.

“The devastation from this storm is heartbreaking and will take years to recover from,” CEO Tim Mettey said. “Mississippi is an area that we have responded to before and we are in contact with our partners to see how we can best assist them with relief and recovery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been impacted by these catastrophic storms.”

According to reports, at least 23 people have been reported dead.
