NOXUBEE COUNTY, MS (WLOX/AP) -

Home video of a tornado in Noxubee County is going viral. The video was taken by Tony Sudduth, and posted on the 4-County Electric Power Association's Facebook page Thursday afternoon. Sudduth is the son of a 4-County employee, Tammy Sudduth.

The video shows a huge twister moving across open farmland. Several people are watching the twister, and although you don't see them in the video, you can hear comments like, "Look at the cows running!" A dog, who clearly knows danger is ahead, is also heard in the background barking and whining.

As the twister approaches a group of silos, the cameraman decides to stop recording and seek shelter.

According to Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn, the tornado hit both Kemper and Noxubee counties before pushing into Alabama.

One fatality was reported west-northwest of DeKalb, near Mississippi Highway 493, in Kemper County.
