Our weather guys were predicting possible tornadoes for us here in Shreveport early this morning but they misjudged the storms. The bad storms went just east of us and wiped out most of Yazoo County, Mississippi.
Governor Haley Barbour held a press conference a couple of hours ago and said the damage reminds him of Hurricane Katrina. The Clarion Ledger has a photo gallery here and their complete coverage is here. Yazoo City is Barbour's home town.
Video is here.
Reportedly, the tornado was nearly a mile wide.
Prayers go out to the people of Mississippi. If you'd like to donate to the Red Cross you can go here.
