Volunteers have been pouring in from other states to help out in the storm cleanup.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief came in from Hammond, Louisiana. Seven volunteers are working at a house on Bentonwood Drive in Brandon, where numerous trees fell and created a mess and a safety hazard. The group is staying at First Baptist Church in Brandon.
After the men spend a few days here, another group will replace them. They want to help the people who have no one else to turn to.
"Here we've been cutting up all the fallen trees," said volunteer Duncan Freche. "We have the Bobcat that's picking them all up. We're gonna go all the way through here as you can see. We'll get the entire yard."
The Red Cross has brought volunteers in from as far away as New York and Michigan. On Friday we found them helping storm victims in the Highlands Mobile Home Park in Pearl.
Red Cross Volunteer Robert Barton says these types of missions give him a chance to catch up with old acquaintances.
"A lot of people I knew from Hurricane Sandy up in New York, and there was a couple I met with Katrina, down here for that, Ike," he said.
The Red Cross volunteers were in the Highlands Mobile Home Park Friday, tending to families who lost their homes.
