How long will food last?
Normally, 4 to 6 hours, depending on temperature of the room.
Other cheeses, such as cream cheese and cottage cheese spoil quickly. Milk quickly spoils without refrigeration. Custards and creamed foods spoil quickly and should be thrown out. Discard eggs that have been without refrigeration for more than a few hours.
Although numbers on paper look about right for Mississippi row crops, the reality is actually quite grim in places.
HAMILTON, Miss. -- Determining the extent of tornado damage to farms in Monroe County will take weeks, but video shot from flying drones will speed up the process.
Mississippi State University Extension Service personnel have been assisting in relief efforts since the morning after an EF-2 tornado on April 13 damaged more than 140 homes in Hamilton, claiming one life and injuring 19 others.
Near a bridge that connects Issaquena and Sharkey counties, Waye Windham leaned toward the side of his boat and dipped a paddle down into flood water to gauge its depth.
The water was too deep for the paddle to reach the ground. Riding with Windham was Lacey Little, who tried a much longer wooden post.
The tornado in Lowndes County and widespread flooding in north Mississippi have triggered a variety of helpful “boots on the ground” to provide needed care and guidance.

Some human foods can be harmful to pets. For dogs, that includes chocolate. (Photo/video credit: MSU Extension/ Brian Utley)
