I think this is the entrance to campus off Hardy Street.

The funnel as it passed through H'Burg. This appears to have been taken at the Clover Leaf Mall looking slightly South of West.

Did Chad Myers of CNN blame the tornado on the “lack of ice” in the Arctic? Seriously, my prayers are up for everyone affected by the storm. I know you can’t judge a tornado’s winds by the funnel shape, but I wouldn’t be surprised by see that one rated as an EF-3.

It’s a red state in the Bible Belt. Don’t worry about it.

My hometown!! I've been checking with family and friends and all are OK. My 93 yr. old Aunt Mary was with her friends, including my s-i-l, and a cousin, along with some other family friends, having their regular Sunday night card game, and had some damage to her roof. They couldn't get out because their cars were blocked by debris. Thankfully, they were rescued, and as they were leaving the house, the ceiling of her den fell in!

There was significant damage to several buildings on the campus of the Univ. of Southern Miss., including the Alumni House, which was only recently remodeled. The storm went right across the Southeast corner of the campus. Our son had finished up his 'on campus' studies at USM, just before Christmas, and is now home. I'd have been crazy with worry if he'd been there!

Just got an email from friends who live a few miles south of Hattiesburg. They said there were 3 tornadoes in the area—they were lucky and did not have any damage.

Shocked by the news this morning, as I’m in Florida and heard nothing about this until my mother-in-law called from Wisconsin to let me know.

Lived in the Hub City for 30 years and graduated from USM. Most of my friends and classmates are no longer there and moved as I have for economic reasons. From what I can see on the net, I’m devastated by this, looks like far more damage locally to “my town” than when Katrina went through, especially to the campus.

My mom’s fine, thank goodness. House is fine, power is on. She’s so excited, she told me when I phoned worried as all get out, that she’s going to her friend’s brand new house for the first time to play bridge today.
