News to Go for Wednesday

  • Severe weather is expected across the state today. Much of the state is under a limited threat advisory, with severe storms possible bringing heavy wind, hail, and the possibility of tornadoes. In Northeast Mississippi, the tornado threat is greater with severe storms capable of producing 60 mph winds, quarter size hail, and a few tornadoes possible. News Mississippi will continue to follow the development of severe weather for you.
  • Domestic violence won’t be listed as grounds for divorce this year, as the Senate Bill that would have added the category died in committee.

  • The Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance will be hosting a press conference on the steps of Jackson City Hall this morning to speak about the recent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids across much of Mississippi. Over 50 were detained as part of that investigation. News Mississippi will continue to follow this story.
