Official Extended NWS Forecast:
On a serious note:
Some of you know I’m a Broadcast Meteorology student at Mississippi State. The tornado outbreak we witnessed over the past couple of days impacted thousands of people, who — today — are still without power, food, and/or water in many harder hit areas across the Southeast.
Those of us in Starkville were fortunate to have been missed by tornadoes, but neighboring communities were not spared. We saw pieces of houses — including doors and parts of couches — falling from the sky onto and around campus from the EF-4 tornado that ripped through Louisville, MS, 25 miles away. Below is the door. The photo was taken by my professor.
There is a way to help those in need:
If you would like to help, you can make a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
Don’t Forget to reply YES! Money goes to help all tornado victims, including those in Lincoln County, TN. The Red Cross is set up there, too.
