Kim Linych and her neices and nephew sit outside, grieving the destruction from the dangerous storm system that killed nine people in Mississippi and several others in neighboring states. Tupelo, the hometown of Elvis Presley, tallied one of the total 31 deaths resulting from the Monday night twisters. Bart Aguirre, the Tupelo chief of police, said emergency crews will have their hands full this week.
