[국제]A small town in Mississippi that has gone awry… Recovery in the midst of crisis


A small town in the United States, where a state of emergency was declared, was devastated by a hurricane, a powerful hurricane.

With at least 26 dead in two states, a painful recovery has begun.

Reporter Kim Tae-hyun reports.

Neatly arranged residential areas and commercial areas have now turned into muddy fields and are difficult to find.

Only remnants remain of the post office and government offices that were swept away by the hurricane.

Drone photos show the damage situation in detail.

The roofs of houses and buildings have been damaged or completely blown away, and the interior is also disastrous and dizzying.

Destroyed trucks were buried in rubble and could no longer move, and bare trees lost all their branches and only skeletons remained.

Residents who survived the disaster came out to recover.
