Mississippi Tornado Causes Mass Destruction

By Douglas V. Gibbs

A mile wide tornado that made landfall in Mississippi on Saturday has killed ten people, and officials fear the death toll number may rise. The path of the tornado is one of destroyed churches, houses, and lives. Power is out for hundreds of citizens, and automobiles were tossed around like they were little toys. Trapped residents and devastated neighborhoods await emergency aid, as Yazoo County tries to come to grips with the fact that it was at the center of the huge tornado that ripped through the Mississippi countryside.

The damage left by the tornado is being described by some as being as bad as the destruction left by Hurricane Katrina.
