Operation Tornado: WJTV visits Oak Grove Lower Elementary in Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, Miss (WJTV) - WJTV Storm Team 12 visited Oak Grove Lower Elementary school today for Operation Tornado.

Our own Griffin Hardy met with a small intimate group of nearly 700 second and third graders... okay, six hundred and ninety to be exact.

The students learned where to go and what to do during a tornado warning and received their own Operation Tornado booklets.

We are in the final month of our Operation Tornado Initiative. Our visit to Oak Grove brings the total of children reached to more than 10,000.

Our last Operation Tornado will be at Northside Elementary in Pearl next Wednesday with Grant Garland.
