'It's Coming Right at Us': Possible Tornado Spotted Along Mississippi Highway

A possible tornado was spotted east of Laurel, Mississippi, on March 17, amid a flurry of severe weather warnings in the southern United States.

On Wednesday, the National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for parts of “western and central Alabama to eastern Mississippi.” At 12:20 pm, the National Weather Service’s Mobile office tweeted that a tornado was moving through Mississippi’s Wayne County, where it had already caused damage to homes.

This footage, showing the possible tornado, was recorded by Shana Hodge shortly after noon on March 17. Hodge said it was filmed on Highway 84, about 20 miles east of Laurel, in Wayne County. Credit: Shana Hodge via Storyful
