Statewide Day of Prayer Declared for MS Storm Victims

Posted: Updated:

A statewide day of prayer has been declared to honor Mississippi residents who suffered losses in Saturday's deadly tornado.

Governor Haley Barbour has ordered state flags to be flown at half staff beginning today through Friday, as a part of a period of mourning.

The day of prayer is also for those families who lost loved ones in last week's oil rig accident off the Louisiana coast.

Four Mississippians are among the eleven missing workers involved in the explosion in the Gulf of Mexico.
