Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Tornado
We had a very damaging tornado on Sunday afternoon, February 10 in Hattiesburg. I stood on my front porch and watched it move from west to east, almost not comprehending what I was seeing. But when pictures began coming in, it was very sobering to realize I was only about 10 blocks from University of Southern Mississippi, where there was serious damage. Our church was not damaged, but several friends in church, Pine Belt Quilters, and the art association did not fare as well. It is fortunate that we have not had any serious injuries or deaths reported. We lost TV cable and thousands lost power; I was fortunate to only lose TV but not power.
