JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Capital City was also in the path of the storm. There is wide spread damage in several parts of the area.

An industrial park on Boling Street in Jackson saw some frightening damage. Cars, trucks and heavy metal toppled over and spinning in the air. We found the parking lot of the Space Center Park littered with at least three overturned tractor trailers.

Most of the vehicles were parked when the twister came through around noon time. No one was hurt, but we're told one truck driver had to exit his vehicle and run for cover. At least one of the cars was turned upside down.

"I actually saw this one in the air as it landed. Our dumpster was right here. It flew open, hit this pole. Back here where Entergy is, it was something to see," said business owner, Greg Davis.

A dangerous power line lay across the street after the storm. Entergy quickly came out to make repairs.
