YAZOO CITY, MS (WLBT) - Governor Haley Barbour was back in his hometown Sunday reassuring people of all their clean-up efforts.
The governor said officials are continuing to assess damage in the affected area, and once they have a better idea of how much damage occurred statewide, officials will ask for a dollar amount from the federal government.
Meanwhile, Barbour commended the recovery efforts of people around the state. He said "this tragedy," like Hurricane Katrina, brings out the best in people.
The governor was also in Choctaw County early Sunday morning assessing damage in that area.
