SHARKEY CO., Miss. (WLBT) - A radar-confirmed tornado shattered the Mason Trailer Park community in Anguilla, leaving three people injured according to the National Weather Service.

People who live in the community said they worked together to help a neighbor escape during the storm.

The Mason Trailer Park community is located off Highway 61.

The homes were hardly recognizable. Some cars were nestled in a big pile of storm debris, electronic devices, and kitchen appliances.

Leslie Jackson, who lives in the small close-knit community, told us her mobile home is one of two that is somehow still standing.

But Jackson said little remains of her five neighbors’ homes.

Russette Fraizer, who says her extended family lives there, says everyone she knows is sitting outside what’s left of their mobile homes in a state of shock, assessing damages.
