Violent storm devastates Mississippi

Good Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

The day is off to a 44 degree start and we can look forward to a much calmer day ahead. Meteorologist Paul Williams will let us know what we can expect and he'll help us get our weekend planned with his First Alert Forecast.

Coming up, Mississippi emergency officials have confirmed one death and numerous injuries as a result of Thursday's severe weather outbreak. Skycopter 3 will take us around east Mississippi and the southeast to show you the impact and destruction yesterday's storm left on several communities.

Plus, one week since he was gunned-down while interrogating a murder suspect the Jackson community continues to remember the life of slain JPD detective Eric Smith.

And, always here to lighten the mood on a Friday, Fresh From the Flame's Julie Levanway is cooking with us this morning.

All of that and much more is headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, make your way over to Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday and a better weekend!
