I have seen pics on facebook of Smithville. It is bad. My family is ok but house is mostly gone. I heard lots of people missing. The pics show most of the town is badly damaged. Most of the houses that should be in the pics are not there anymore.

They finally got in touch with us. They live closer to Amory and cell service was down. Glad they are safe but hear that they have smithville friends that have lost everything. How devastating! We will pray for this town and those that are in need.

Smithville is completely gone. There's is absolutely nothing left along hwy 25. Our house got the outer part of it and our roof is gone and it put a tree in our living room. There is no power, no water and no gas. We have pictures on Facebook.

I live in Smithville, but was among the lucky ones.. The funeral home, piggly wiggly, dollar general, 1st baptist church, post office, phil's place, mel's diner are just what I know is gone.. The bank, city hall, the school, are all damaged severely.. Several dead or missing, haven't heard a number yet.. Highway patrol had 25 from Fulton closed at Bull Mountain bridge at 10 tonite sayin that the town was completely shut down.. Heard we will be without power for 3-5 days.. please say a special prayer for everyone involved.. Thx..
