The Hattiesburg City Council has approved measures related to the aftermath of the Feb. 10 tornado.

The Hattiesburg American reports the council approved the state of emergency declaration, signed on Feb. 10, and approved agreements with Pine Belt Solid Waste Authority and Waste Management to dispose of storm debris in landfills.
