Eventually, The Weather Channel will learn its Mississippi geography. The weather network has apologized for referring to Hattiesburg as Johannesburg, MS, in its post-tornado coverage Monday.
During Hurricane Issac, the network upset many when it referred to Mississippi as the “Land Mass between New Orleans and Mobile,” prompting a Facebook page by that name.
The Weather Channel apology said: “Thank you for posting this. We apologize for the mistake — we noticed it and corrected it for the rest of our coverage.”
