Rapidly moving storms cause plenty of damage


Rapidly moving storms brought some relief to the metro but left plenty of damage behind, and many people in the dark tonight.

Several outages have been reported by Entergy this evening. 14 of those outages are in the Jackson. 18 more in Vicksburg, 8 in Hazlehurst and over 50 outages in Crystal Springs.

That storm system is being blamed for a number of fallen trees. In Rankin County, one family narrowly escaped injury when a tree fell on their home.

There were reports of a number of trees down in Hinds County, and one in Edwards. The fallen trees caused power outages in those areas.

Many residents are still without power as crews work to repair the damage.
