The NWS out of Jackson recently updated their systems to allowe notice of tornados soon as debree flys giving people advanced notice. One of the videos from inside hattiesburg shows two funnel clouds at brief moment. The stormchasers came close to running into the storm itself. My sisters mother-in-law lives about one-half mile southeast of Oak Grove school. The mayors home was damaged. Last friday the Institutions of Higher Learner in the state hired the first Afri an American Dr. Bennett from Georgia to lead USM. A first in Mississippi and they gave Dr. Bounds authority to sign contracts on Wednesday to rebuild the University. Dr Bennett has hit the ground running.
