Port Chester woman packs her bags and heads for native Mississippi
A Port Chester woman is packing her bags and heading for her native hometown of Biloxi, Mississippi.
Azline Kemp says her family members decided to stay in their home despite the wrath of Hurricane Katrina, so she feared the worst. As a result of coverage on News 12 Westchester and help from national media outlets, a Biloxi police officer saw her story and contacted her family. Kemp says her daughter called and told her she was OK.
Both the Kemp family and the hotel it owned are now gone. Kemp is leaving for Biloxi Thursday to reunite with her family. Several local churches and Mayor Ernie Davis (D-Mount Vernon) donated the money for the trip.
