President Joe Biden will travel to Rolling Fork, Mississippi, on Friday to tour storm damage and meet with those affected by the deadly tornadoes that killed more than two dozen people last week.

“The president and the first lady will visit with first responders, state and local officials, and communities,” the White House said in a statement on Wednesday evening.
