March 21, 2003

(Camilla-AP) -- The Mitchell County coroner has released the names of the four people killed in the tornado Thursday morning.

Coroner Jim Jamerson said today the victims of yesterday's tornadoes are 40-year-old Kay DeMott, 42-yearold O. C. Williams, eight-year-old Bakari Haywood,  and eight-month-old Jahaven Hill.

Kay DeMott's husband, Tommy, was treated and released from the hospital.

Two people also were killed in Worth County after the tornadoes touched down in southwest Georgia before dawn yesterday. Authorities identify the victim as 77-year-old Edna Causey and her 50-year-old son, Steve Causey. Authorities say 200 people were hurt.

Governor Perdue toured the area yesterday and declared a state of emergency in the two counties. He promised full state support -- despite a budget crisis.
