Louisville, Mississippi, Rebuilds After Tornado

Monday, May 12, 2014

Another day of severe thunderstorms and possibly a few tornadoes are predicted today for much of the Midwest and Plains states, after powerful storms moved through Nebraska yesterday.

In Louisville, Mississippi, people are still cleaning up from a deadly round of thunderstorms two weeks ago that destroyed three industrial buildings and severely damaged the area hospital.
