JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A 26-mile stretch of the Natchez Trace Parkway is temporally closed.

This after severe weather passed through the state Tuesday, downing trees in its wake.

The closure is between the Reservoir and Red Dog Road in Madison and Leake counties (MP 114 to 140).

The Park Service recently completed a major clean-up project from a previous storm in this area.
