HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Survivors of a January tornado that swept through Hattiesburg and other areas of the Pine Belt in Mississippi are getting help from the Salvation Army.

Capt. Patrick Connelly says the Salvation Army facility in Hattiesburg was not spared from the Jan. 21 storm either but that won’t stop what they’ve been doing for the last 110 years - standing with the community.

He tells WDAM-TV (https://bit.ly/2s4veZt ) they will be providing direct financial assistance to those who have a claim number from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. To be eligible for assistance, residents need to call The Salvation Army for an appointment at 601-544-3684.

Once residents have an appointment, they will complete the application process at the agency’s temporary office at 5611 U.S. Highway 49 South in Hattiesburg.
