Hopkins County Sheriff along with investigators, deputies, and a number of trusted inmates traveled to Canton and Emory Saturday evening after tornadoes ripped through the Van Zandt and Rains County area. They were involved in immediate clean-up and rescue.
The Sheriff took chain saws and other equipment to assist the neighbors to the south. They spent several hours immediately following the destruction left in the wake of the tornadoes.
According to Lt. Tanner Crump, Hopkins County officers will return to one or both counties when the proper requests for assistance are received.
