The Recent Ice Storm Is The Worst Mississippi Has Seen Since 1996
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware that a historic winter storm recently pummeled Mississippi with ice and snow. The effects of the storm were felt across the state, as ice was reported on roads in 74 of Mississippi’s 82 counties! Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time Mississippi has experienced such a severe winter storm; however, it has been quite some time…25 years to be exact. Read on to learn more about these two history-making storms that Mississippians will no doubt remember for years to come.
Brrrr! I don’t know about you, but I get chilly just thinking about these two winter storms. Were you around for the ice storm of 1996? If so, how do you think the recent storm measures up? Tell us in the comments section.
These aren’t Mississippi’s only history-making winter storms. A severe ice storm hit the state in 1994, too.
