COLUMBIA, Miss. (AP, abc24.com) — At least two people were hurt and numerous trees and utility lines pulled down when a tornado swept through southern Marion County.
Ed Agre, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Jackson, says the twister touched down just after 4 p.m. Tuesday It destroyed at least one mobile home and heavily damaged a few homes in the area. Agre did not have any details on how the people were injured.
Agre says a survey team will head to the area Wednesday to collect data that will help determine the tornado's strength.
