Rebuilding, repairing begins

Staff Writer

A week after much of Grenada was covered with water, the rebuilding process continues for much of the area.
Grenada County EMA Director Trebia Rodgers said assessments are being completed and given to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency to show just the amount of damage done to the area from the 16 inches of rain that hammered the area last week.
“We’re at the end of sending the damage assessments to the MEMA, and the last of the them are dwindling in,” Rodgers said.
So far MEMA is reporting 100 homes, 22 businesses and 30 roads that were damaged by last week’s storms and flooding. Grenada suffered more   flood damage than any other county in the state, according to MEMA.
