A Better Mid-South: #FloodRelief16

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

Flood water surged in the Mid-South this month and forced several of our neighbors--especially in North Mississippi--from their homes.

I remember when Tamika Hawkins came home to find water running through her house and had to save her dog, Teddy, who was trapped inside.

Or the boat tour taken by WMC Action News 5's Rose Eiklor that showed the depth of the devastation.

We are asking you to give if you can to Flood Relief 16. The money will help people like Tamika Hawkins, her family, and many others.

We are partnered with the American Red Cross and our Raycom Media sister stations across the flooded areas to ask for your help with donations.

You can make a donation by clicking here or texting  FLOOD to 90105.

It's not too late to give.

Your donations will go a long way to helping our neighbors in need. Giving always makes this A Better Mid-South.
