A temporary hospital was sent from North Carolina to Louisville, Mississippi, helping to fill the gap after a recent tornado heavily damaged Winston County's only hospital, a nursing home and medical offices, according to an article on the WXII12 website.

Eighteen trucks carrying tents and equipment were sent by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
