Gov. Phil Bryant stood on the campus of his alma mater, The University of Southern Mississippi, Monday morning and declared that the state would respond to devastation wrought by Sunday’s tornado in typical fashion – with resiliency.
“Unfortunately we have more experience and are better qualified than anyone in the nation to deal with weather-related emergencies,” said Bryant before a media throng at the Thad Cochran Center. “I always enjoy being on the Southern Miss campus, and it’s difficult to see the damage that is here. But these men and women know how to handle this and know exactly what to do.”
