Daylight is offering emergency management officials in Mississippi the chance to get a better handle on the damage that stretches across several counties after a tornado tore through the area.

Gov. Phil Bryant plans to visit hard-hit Hattiesburg and the University of Southern Mississippi, his alma mater, on Monday. The twister moved along one of the city's main streets and damaged buildings at the school on Sunday.
 
Emergency officials say at least 10 people were injured in surrounding Forrest County and three were hurt to the west in Marion County, but they were not aware of any deaths.
 
It was raining at first light Monday. People have started trying to salvage what they can in one damaged neighborhood.
