Storms leave downed trees, power lines in Mississippi

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — Officials say a line of severe weather moving across Mississippi downed power lines and trees in parts of the state.

National Weather Service forecaster Brad Bryant said there were scattered reports of wind damage and hail across north Mississippi on Tuesday. He says downed trees and power lines were reported in the Delta city of Greenville.

Greenville Police Department dispatcher Roslyn Boston says there was minimal damage in the city. She says no injuries have been reported.

The rain was welcomed by many. Mississippi has been under a burn ban because of dry conditions.
