A string of violent storms ripped through central Mississippi last Friday. Meg Pace, a reporter from WAPT out of Jackson went out to survey the damage and file a report. During this process Meg came across Mr. Eric Hubbard who explained that he was with a friend in his car eating lunch when a tornado barreled towards them.
What happened next in the interview will go down in viral video history:
In case you got an oppressive work situation and were unable to check out the clip here is what Mr. Hubbard had to say:
Pace: What was going through your mind?
Hubbard: That I’m fixing to die.
Pace: Hubbard was thinking about making a run for the house but his friend talked him out of it.
Hubbard: I was scared. I was fixing to eat a hamburger and it took it! And I don’t even know where it’s at.
Pace: (incredulous) It took the hamburger right out of your hand?
Hubbard: Hamburger, fries and drink. I don’t know where it’s at.
On a serious note those storms caused some massive damage as the report indicated. We wish the best for the families who suffered at the hands of the brutal weather. You can see the full report filed by Meg Pace for WAPT here.
UPDATE: Meg was kind enough to let us know that, “Amazingly everyone was ok in our area of Mississippi. Just structural (and burger) losses.” As a diligent reporter does she is on her way to catch up with Eric.
