Mississippi tornado hits Hattiesburg

Reports of a tornado that might have been as large as a half-mile wide tore through Hattiesburg on Sunday. Preliminary images and videos show a vast amount of damage on the University of Southern Mississippi campus. The video above was posted by YouTube user Rynal Grant, and shows the size and strength of the tornado as it went through the city.

Hattiesburg is similar to Tuscaloosa in that it’s a city that revolves around the university. It quickly will bring comparisons to April 27, 2011, and memories of a storm that ripped through one of the most populated areas of Tuscaloosa.
