Mississippi tornado

Greg Flynn, a spokesman for the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, said that unlike the tornadoes typical for the area this time of year, “we don’t see tornadoes that are three-quarters of a mile wide here. This is clearly the worst tornado in decades.” Left, the remains of a bar in Yazoo City.

An emergency official estimated that the storm left thousands without power and hundreds homeless. Left, destroyed homes along the north shore of Eagle Lake in Warren County.

Five of the dead were from Choctaw County, in the north central part of of the state, four were from Yazoo County, north of Jackson, and one was from Holmes County, also in the north central Mississippi, he said.

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who was in Yazoo City where his home is located, called the twister “gigantic” and said that “in places [it] seemed to be to be several miles wide.”

Some residents were trapped in badly damaged homes, he said.
