Tornado Rips Into Gulfport Neighborhood

Early this morning, a tornado damaged several homes in Gulfport's Sherwood Forest neighborhood. The strong wind left large pieces of roof scattered along the street on Poplar Avenue. Several homes and vehicles were damaged when the twister hit around five thirty this morning.

No one in the neighborhood was injured. Pearl Webb's home was among the hardest hit. She woke up to the loud sounds of her roof collapsing. A most unusual sight in the neighborhood demonstrates the strength of the wind. A piece of board was driven into the side of a brick house on Poplar Avenue.
