Massive tornado hits Mississippi.
 
This thread is basically meant for Lotus who lives in Southern Miss. And teaches at Southern Miss university. Hopefully Lotus and everyone is OK in that region. All of my family back home is good so prayers to everyone else and Lotus.

Agreed, hope you and your family are well, Lotus.

Damn Lotus really hope you and yours are alright, sounds like the storm did significant damage to your neck of the woods.

Hope everybody is alright. That looked pretty damn huge to me.

Very Scary. From what I hear there are no confirmed deaths, lets hope it stays that way.

Surprisingly, we actually had a record down year in tornadoes last year, but if the beginning of this year is any indication- it's looking like it will be a rough spring.

Thanks for the concern, guys. I appreciate it. I am fine. But I have several friends who are now homeless because of partially or fully destroyed homes. The building in which I teach and have my office is pretty damaged and some other buildings on campus are wiped out. It is almost impossible to get around town because of all of the trees and power lines down. In places the damage is worse than Katrina and I never thought that I'd be able to say that. But no one, to my knowledge, is dead, so as far as calamities go things could be much worse.

Glad to hear you're OK Lotus! Buildings and homes can eventually be replaced, but lives cannot!

Glad your ok man. did the town have enough time with the sirons and warnings? That was a huge ass tornado.

Yeah, the tornado early warning system is helpful. I think that is why the death toll was so minor. People were smart about finding safe places. Plus school has a short Mardi Gras break, so luckily there were few students on campus.

That's good man, living in OK I understand how fast they can come through a town. Did you actually see the twister? Or take video like many did

Yeah you know what it is like. You live in Tornado Alley whereas I live in Tornado Alley Jr. I did not see the twister myself and I have no video, but there are a bunch of videos on the internet.

Palazzo, in many ways, is a giant douche.

Glad your good. Mardi Gras has saved many college students lives throughout the years.
