MEMA Director Robert Latham Comments on the Passing of TV Journalist Bert Case

Statement from Mr. Latham:

PEARL – “Today the emergency management community lost a dear friend and the state lost a great man. Bert has reported some of the most destructive disasters in this country’s history from Hurricane Camille to Hurricane Katrina. Bert and I established a special bond leading up to Hurricane Katrina’s landfall that has lasted to this day. The last time I spoke with him was during his coverage of the Katrina 10-year Anniversary on August 29 on the Mississippi coast. He was a dear friend that I will miss. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Mary and their family as they deal with this loss and face the difficult days ahead.”
