EF2 tornado in Copiah County

Posted: Updated:

COPIAH COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - All Copiah County roads have re-opened after an EF2 tornado tore through the area. Authorities were busy clearing trees early this morning from Monticello Road, James Road, and Highway 472 at Perrit Road in Copiah County.

We had crews out on Monticello Road, who found damage just a few hours after the storm hit. We could see trees down on a house, and on vehicles at an auto body shop next door. The Copiah EOC director confirmed this was, in fact, a tornado. Many residents told us it certainly sounded like one.

The strong weather system wiped out power to hundreds of Entergy customers. But power has been restored to all but a handful of customers. Right now, there are no reports of any injuries.
