Mississippi is a state located in the southern region of the United States. The state takes its name from the Mississippi River, which flows along its western boundary. Jackson, the largest city in Mississippi, is also the state capital.

Mississippi has a hot humid subtropical climate with long summers and short, mild winters. In the late summer and the fall, the state (especially the southern part) is often affected by hurricanes moving north from the Gulf of Mexico, and occasionally impacted by major hurricanes, which can be quite devastating in coastal communities. Thunderstorms are common in Mississippi, especially in the southern part of the state.
