Trustees discuss emergency funding for tornado-torn schools
Published: February 15,2013
HATTIESBURG — Members of the Hattiesburg Public School District board of trustees met yesterday to discuss emergency funding for the damage caused to Hattiesburg schools by Sunday’s EF4 tornado.
The Hattiesburg American reports the tornado damaged 25 of the district’s 27 buses, wrecked the high school baseball field and caused substantial structural damage to other parts of the high school campus.
Spokesman Jas N Smith said adjusters are still assessing the wreckage, and no monetary value has yet been placed on the damage.
District business manager Frank Aderholdt said the school district would do anything in its power to make sure the students were well accommodated, including transportation needs and temporary facilities.
