JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for much of South Mississippi Wednesday as a cold front entered the area.

A tornado likely did touch down near Picayune, leaving nearly 400 people in the dark. No injuries were reported.

Temperatures into Thursday afternoon will be much cooler - in the mid 60s.

Parts of Louisiana, however, were not spared from the severe storms, with a powerful tornado ripping through South Lake Charles.
