The scale of the destruction here is difficult to comprehend.
At least 24 are dead in Mississippi after a tornado touched down just after sundown Friday in a storm system that delivered twisters, heavy rain, wind gusts and hail as it traveled throughout the South.
The storm system ripped through Mississippi and produced a tornado that touched down and caused catastrophic damage to communities across the state. In Rolling Fork, a rural town about 60 miles northwest from the state capital of Jackson, what were once buildings are now piles of scattered debris. The twister moved northeast, devastating rural areas.
Footage of the trail of destruction is nearly unbelievable.
The tornado was reportedly an unthinkable two miles wide at its base. If true, this would put it at among the largest tornadoes ever recorded.
The radar signal of the tornado was so terrifying that one meteorologist was moved to prayer while live on-air.
