Meteorologist says possible tornadoes hit south Mississippi

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — The National Weather Service says it’s investigating whether tornadoes or straight-line winds are to blame for damage in two Mississippi counties.

Brad Bryant, a meteorologist with National Weather Service in Jackson, says a crew was sent Friday to Jefferson Davis County, where he said a mobile home was damaged and a tree fell on a house.

Bryant says another possible tornado in Mississippi damaged a chicken house near Collins in Covington County.

Bryant says the weather teams study damage patterns to determine if a tornado hit, and if so, how strong it was.
