Meridian. Miss.. March :: At the
break of day this morning confusion
as a result of last evening's storm
still prevailed. The rescuers work
ed all night and removed a number
of dead bodies and Injured persona
from the ruins A detailed liât of
the casualties is still unobtainable,
but it is believed the loss of life will
reach one hundred. It is probable
that the injured will be twice that
number. Telegraphic service with
the outside world is spasmodic, and
news from other points affected by
the storm is of a meager nature.
Order here is being restored as
rapidly as possible under the circum
stances. That portion of the town
struck by the tornado presents a
scene of desolation aud destruction
that beggars description. Magnifi
cent business blocks have been crum
bled into atoms and where once stood
elegant homes grief stricken men and
women are searching through the
wreckage for their loved ones who
are missing.
