Thunderstorms down trees, knock out power

JACKSON -- Thunderstorms pushing across Mississippi have produced high winds and hail, but Oxford appears to have dodged a tornado warning and ominous looking clouds with no damage. 

 

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said Monday evening no significant damage had been reported in the state. 

 

The storms did knock out power to more than 15,000 Entergy Mississippi customers, although that number was falling early Monday evening. Some electric power associations also reported outages. 

 

Hail reports included golf-ball sized hail in southern Marshall County. Trees were reported down in more than a dozen central and north Mississippi counties, including a tree falling on a house in Pocahontas, in northwest Hinds County. 

 

A risk of severe thunderstorms is forecast to continue today.
