NATCHEZ — Natchez Mayor Dan Gibson is calling on citizens here to donate items needed by those in Rolling Fork, Silver City and Amory, which have been devastated by recent tornadoes.

Gibson said Robert Bradford, director of Adams County Emergency Management, has provided to him a list of items in great need by community members there.

Bradford and others from Natchez and Adams County have been in Rolling Fork, where damage is most severe, since Saturday.

Bradford and others are helping with the huge task of cleaning up and with preparations to begin rebuilding.

“Many families have been displaced, and fortunately Mississippians are responding with help. It’s our turn to pitch in,” Gibson said.

Items needed desperately include:

New blankets and pillows






Insect repellant

Gibson said these items may be dropped off at either Natchez Fire Station No. 1, 800 Main St., or the Natchez Police Department, 233 D’Evereux Drive.

“We will be making a delivery to Rolling Fork sometime Wednesday afternoon,” Gibson said.
