Another day of severe thunderstorms and possibly a few tornadoes are predicted today for much of the Midwest and Plains states, after powerful storms moved through Nebraska yesterday.

In Louisville, Mississippi, people are still cleaning up from a deadly round of thunderstorms two weeks ago that destroyed three industrial buildings and severely damaged the area hospital.

Gerald Mills, a business leader in town, tells Here & Now’s Robin Young that he’s optimistic his area will bounce back, but it’s going to take a while.
