PEARL, Miss. (AP) - Gov. Phil Bryant has issued a state of emergency for all areas of the state that may be affected by severe weather moving toward Mississippi.

A severe storm system, with potential for strong tornadoes, damaging winds, hail and heavy rain, is expected to impact the state through Tuesday night.

Bryant’s office says the state of emergency is an administrative tool that allows local governments to request state assistance to help with response and recovery associated with any storm recovery.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency will provide updates as information becomes available.
