TYLERTOWN, Miss. (AP) -- A possible tornado has destroyed one building, moved another six feet off of its foundation and killed at least one dog at the St. Francis Animal Sanctuary in Tylertown.
Roland Vandenweghe, Walthall County's Emergency Manager, told The Enterprise-Journal (http://bit.ly/Noaja5 ) that a tornado might have touched down during Thursday's stormy weather.
The National Weather Service in Slidell, La., says it will send someone to the area later Thursday to determine if the damage done was by a twister. The storm also brought down trees and power lines in Summit, knocking out electricity to the police station and town hall.
One of the shelter's 350 dogs died when strong winds blew a kennel wall onto the building and another dog was critically injured. Two other animals had minor injuries.
