My daughter, her husband, and the grands live in the sticks near Mccolm Mississippi. I lost contact with them at about 8pm Central Time.
Their house is not very strong to say the least so they were going to sister in laws place. That house is much better and they will be with people who are always ready for anything. As much as they can be. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone knows what's happening in or about Mccolm or Columbia Ms. Thank You

A prayer for your family.
If you have Facebook, a better forum would be to reach out on there, you’d probably get a much better response.
See if there is a FB page for their police or fire department, or even neighborhood group.
People will be connected on there even if they aren’t at the location.

God Bless.

From what I have read it is a complete power outage in many areas. No cell phone, no electric.... Hope all is well with your family sincerely.

I've tried. I was monitoring several storm chasers and the emergency services. I can't get anything from any of them for hours now. That's why I'm here. Thank you and please don't stop praying. a reply to: JAGStorm

Some news from McComb from 25 mins ago

www.wjtv.com...

Heavy winds and rain. Natural that there'd be a power outage but no need for alarm.

Couldn't find any direct news about Columbia, but what i did find indicated Mississippi was not hit as hard as Louisiana.

Either way. I hope your family and anyone in Ida's path is safe.

People are posting on the Columbia Ms Facebook police page.
There are real heavy winds and electricity is out in a lot of places, and some flooding.

This is what they have posted. There are people still responding there, so you might want to reach out in comments. You never know.


Please seek shelter as conditions are rapidly deteriorating in Mississippi. Downed trees and powerlines are a significant concern throughout the night. Due to the extreme weather conditions, law enforcement response times will be delayed.

Another example of a flaw in newer technology that would not be an issue with older technology. A landline would probably be working just fine.

People think I’m crazy, but I still have a landline. It works during our crazy blizzards here when all else is down.

I've wondered about the old payphones that used to be everywhere. I don't know for sure, but I assume they still work without power, just like a home landline. Maybe not, but if they would still work then maybe they should have left some of them around, just so they would be available for situations like this when the power is out.

Keeping you and your family in my prayers. I'm glad they are sheltering with prepared people. Theyre probably happily sheltering together playing games and eating snacks from the fridge by candlelight. Hugs!

I'm a commercial electrician and I live on the gulf coast. Neither cell nor land lines work without power. I spent many months installing generators at cell towers after Katrina and Ivan and that will work in a limited capacity. Usually only for emergency services not everyone. Land lines will not work if they loose power. If your lights go out but you still have a working land line that means the phone company still has power. The phone company has always had a better than you and me relationship with the power company. It's critical that they do, even now when they do not seem to be as important as they once were but they are.

Once the power is off for more than 4 or 5 hours, the batteries in cable tv systems begin to run down. Internet service begins to fail.

Interesting! We had no power for 10 days and I had a landline back then and many in the neighbourhood who had opted for cell and cordless phones had to use mine. I always wondered why it still worked after that storm hit but I guess the phone company infrastructure wasn't damaged and they kept the lines going.

Weird. I still have a landline that works without power. It's hardwired into the house, it doesn't run on the fibreop lines. The phone is from the 60's and it still works fine, just a little fuzzy.
