Our Tornado, in the News

What a way to make national news! Have a tornado (one of many!) that hits on Christmas Day!

In this article by NBC News, our town is mentioned by name! Suspected tornadoes also damaged homes and other structures Tuesday in or near Centreville, McNeill, Maxie and Janice in Mississippi; and in or near Luverne, Wilmer and Riderwood in Alabama, according to The Weather Channel.

A state of emergency was declared in Mississippi late Tuesday by governor Phil Bryant, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency told NBC News in a statement. Homes, roads and businesses were damaged in at least nine counties.

Last night (12/27), if you watched ABC World News, they mentioned "our" tornado, and our town by name....right up there with the tornado that hit Mobile!

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (or NOAA) and the National Weather Service posted a report about our tornado, too.

And here is a video, from a storm chaser. The location of our tornado is at about 2:23 in to the video.

I wish I had videoed our local news broadcast report of the tornado, too, but alas! I didn't "plan ahead." Ha!
