Possible tornado damage in Gulfport

A possible tornado touched down in Gulfport Sunday as one of Hurricane Ida’s powerful rain bands moved onshore.

You can see the devastation left behind in the city. Local emergency managers reported seeing a funnel cloud and a tornado warning was in effect for more than 30 minutes.

Near the Coast, trees were uprooted and several large branches were broken off in the strong winds.

The National Weather Service has not yet surveyed the area to determine if a tornado did in fact touch down.
