Did they come thru ok on the big tornado that came thru Hattiesburg today? Just thinking about ya. For those that don't know a huge tornado tore up a lot of stuff around USM and Oak Grove High.

Thanks for asking, catahoula. My parents are fine. They said the neighborhood was wrecked (the family house is right by Southern Miss off 49 by Hardy St.
My dad said he was driving around the USM campus and it's downed buildings all over.

Im from Hattiesburg and currently live here. Things are bad but not as bad as people are making them seem. USM was out of school for the Mardi Gras break so no one was on campus and there were no reported injuries from the campus area. There are only three buildings with extensive damage on campus. My girlfriend lives in apartments half a mile from campus and there all fine. Some areas were bad tonight driving around as i went and checked on my parents, but mainly real spotty, not a long corridor type damage. USM is scheduled to resume classes as scheduled on Wednesday. Things cold have been much worse and we are fortunate things werent. Continue praying for the ones affected by the storm
We're glad you & your family are safe, MS18. We'll all be praying for you guys.
Glad you are ok and all you folks in Hattiesburg will be in our prayers because dealing with the aftermath is difficult.
Thanks for everyone's concern. Thankfully there still has not been a single reported death from all this, but the damage is really bad in some areas. USM declared a state of emergency and has closed campus until what looks like to be thursday. The worst for most people is power due to several, several downed power lines. Some people lost everything including a friend of mine, so keep those people in your prayers.
