A storm survey team is heading to the Mississippi State University campus in Starkville after imagery surfaced showing a possible funnel cloud or tornado may have been responsible for wind damage Monday evening.
It was originally thought to be the result of straight line winds, but an image from the Junction Cam on MSU's campus showed a possible funnel cloud moving over campus at the same time the line of storms moved through. Photos from the scene showed some downed trees around the campus.
“The results of the survey are expected to be completed and transmitted via a Public Information Statement later (Wednesday)," the National Weather Service office in Jackson, Mississippi said.
Most signs point toward just straight-line wind damage as it was concentrated over two specific areas of campus. But the survey team will make sure that is the case and not that a brief tornado touched down in two areas.
Video from the air shows how significant the damage was from the tornado that impacted the east side of New Orleans.
