The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency released a preliminary damage report on Sunday revolving around Hurricane Delta.

Delta made landfall near Creole, Louisiana on October 9 as a Category Two storm.

As per usual, accompanying storms with Delta have been the cause of two injuries reported in Lincoln and Wilkinson counties.

There have been multiple counties that sustained damage from storms accompanying Delta, but Lincoln and Wilkinson are the only two counties to release official damage reports.

Lincoln: Three homes with minor damage; two public utilities with major damage

Wilkinson: Four homes with major damage; 14 public roads with minor damage

MEMA has released a self- report tool, which allows residents to self-report damage to county emergency agencies.
