HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
It's been exactly one month
since the EF4 February 10 tornado ripped through the Pine Belt.
Although many residents lost
their homes in the storm, neighborhoods are abandoned, and it will be months, maybe
even years until some can return, after a month, residents have noticed
While areas in Oak Grove,
Lamar Park, Hattiesburg, and Petal are still terribly damaged, and some still
remain without power, thanks to the help of many volunteers the Pine Belt is
There's still much more work
to be done, but Mayor of Hattiesburg, Johnny Dupree, believes progress has been
made within the month.
"I think we've made
significant progress in especially getting the debris off the streets and
getting people power," said Dupree. "I think at this point we've made
significant progress in getting back to some normalcy. We still have some
challenges that we still have to contend with, but you know, because of the
volunteers, and because of the county, Forrest County and the workers, City of Hattiesburg,
and all the other government agencies from around our areas and volunteers,
we've made significant progress."
Dupree suggests those who
have not signed up for assistance, go to the Ben McNair Center and register.
