Tornado Hits Tupelo, Mississippi Thursday Morning

Main Street in the small Mississippi town of Tupelo has an eerie silence Thursday afternoon after an early morning twister dropped lots of rain and threw plywood all over the place.

So far no injuries have been reported, but merchants at the area's Barnes Crossing Shopping Mall says the commuter hour storm dropped power lines and trees across most of the major streets in the area.

A Mississippi DOT building in the area is also said to have suffered damage from the fast moving weather system.
