Hattiesburg, Miss.

Tornado damage to the University of Southern Mississippi's wrought-iron fence has been fixed, and the fence is nearly complete.

The fence was nearly finished when several sections facing Hardy Street were flattened by the tornado that ripped through the Pine Belt on Feb. 10.

Physical Plant Director Chris Crenshaw tells the Hattiesburg American that the tornado delayed construction about 50 days, but only destroyed a few of the wrought-iron segments that it knocked down.

He says only a few last-minute fixes remain in the $550,000 Mississippi Department of Transportation project.
