TANGIPAHOA, La. (WGNO) — Drone footage taken in the Village of Tangipahoa is shedding light on just how severe the damage was following a reported tornado.

Homes were destroyed, trees uprooted, roofs ripped off and debris covered the ground for miles. A mobile home was pulled from the ground and flipped over – the contents of it spewing out into a yard on Tangipahoa Road. Another home’s walls were ripped from the structure, exposing closets and the kitchen. Insultation from these homes was scattered for blocks.

Residents in the area are continuing to recover following the EF-2 tornado, which ripped through the area Wednesday evening (Feb. 9th).

First responders were on scene within hours after the storm hit. The Sheriff’s Office says because of such a massive response for relief efforts, the population of the village nearly doubled.

Red Cross and the Parish Government are set up in the area supplying residents with resources and provisions like tarps to assist with recovery.
