Storm victims start healing process

Good morning and happy Fat Tuesday from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

Your Mardi Gras is starting off at 50 degrees and I don't want to rain on your parade, but.... yeah we got more of the wet stuff on tap today.  Meteorologist Paul Williams will let us know what we can expect hour-by-hour in his First Alert Forecast.

The tornado that tore through Hattiesburg and Oak Grove Sunday has been upgraded to an EF-4 with maximum sustained winds of 170 MPH.  Jessica Bowman will join us live from Hattiesburg to show us how hundreds of home and business owners in the Hub City are recovering this morning.

Plus, we have an exclusive bird's eye view of the damage from Skycopter 3, which flew over the devastated areas Monday.

Also, we'll take a look at Mardi Gras celebrations across the coast and in the Big Easy.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, catch up with us on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a fun Fat Tuesday!
