It’s still a little early to tell, but it looks like at least a few of our historic places around Mississippi, especially on a northeast line from about Flora through Durant, took a hit from yesterday’s nasty weather. Here are just a few of the reports I’ve seen as of late Sunday night.
Damage to historic water tower in Flora, Madison County
Major damage in historic Durant
For some aerial shots of Durant damage that seem to show that the historic depot, a project of the Durant Historic Preservation Commission for several years, is relatively undamaged, see WLBT: http://www.msnewsnow.com/slideshow?widgetid=198643&slideshowimageid=1
So far, reports of possible tornadoes in Adams, Claiborne, and Warren counties don’t seem to show damage to historic properties, but if you know of any other places we should be looking, or if you have photos of damage to historic buildings, let us know in the comments section below.
