KILMICHAEL, Miss. (WTVA) - It's been almost a year since a tornado hit Montogomery County, damaging home and tearing down power lines.
The strong winds hit on April 30, 2017, leaving some citizens without homes.
In town, most of the clean-up has been done, meanwhile trees are still down in the county.
"Right now we are trying to assist residents who were not able to repair their homes through a grant from the state," said Montgomery County EMA Director Allan Pratt.
Pratt says a local committee has been working for months to help citizens.
"The board of supervisors, they worked and were able to obtain funds. We are trying to get homes repaired for people who couldn't repair it themselves."
Fourteen homes in the county are still damaged.
