TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Some local leaders are looking down the road when it comes to recovering from the April tornadoes.

They gathered Monday morning in Tupelo to announce the formation of a group that will address long term needs in Lee and Itawamba counties.

The Northeast Mississippi Community Recovery Committee will allow agencies, churches and volunteers to coordinate their efforts.

"The military motto 'leave no man behind,' that's basically our goal here — leave no citizen behind," said former Tupelo Mayor Jack Reed Junior, a member of the committee.

Anyone interested in helping with the committee is asked to call the United Way of Northeast Mississippi at (662) 841-9133.
