Jackson, MS, United States (4E) – Two tornadoes from severe storms in the South struck and damaged mobile homes in Rose Hill, Mississippi on Saturday as a snowstorm brings icy condition in the Northeast.

No one was reported injured when the tornadoes also struck Lauderdale County and damaged mobile homes and downed power lines and trees in the state.

Tornado watches were put in place in parts of Louisiana as officials investigated whether damage reported in Eastern Monroe County, Alabama, was caused by a tornado.

Lightning were blamed for causing two house fires in Jefferson Davis County northwest of Hattiesburg, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) said.

Jasper County is the hardest hit area in Mississippi with several homes severely damaged, trees and power lines downed, and roads getting flooded, according to MEMA. People there are cleaning up on Sunday.

Covington and Oktibbeha also suffered the same as Jasper County.

In Newton, trees and power lines were downed near the town of Chunky and on I-20 east blocked by downed trees at Duffee Rd. Exit.

Possible flooding is expected in Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. Flash flood warnings … MORE
