ATTALA COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two Attala County men remain in the hospital after they were injured in one of last Friday's tornadoes.

Henry Williams' mobile home in Possumneck was completely destroyed after a twister hit it.  Williams' daughter Kim told WLBT News that her father was taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson with a broken leg, punctured lung and bruises.

One of Williams' neighbors also told us that as of Wednesday, doctors had operated on Williams' leg and that he was partially sedated, but was expected to pull through. Officials at UMC say Williams remains in critical condition.

Williams' friend Michael Robertson was also injured in the tornado. Robertson remains in the hospital, but is in good condition.

Meanwhile, a couple of pictures of the Possumneck tornado have surfaced. They were taken by Jeff Ingram of Madison, and they show what appears to be a tornado over that area.
