JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It appears a tornado swept through a north Jackson mobile home park, flattening homes.

It is located on Shannon Drive off North State Street, just south of Cedars of Lebanon Road.

Trees were uprooted by the force of the winds. No one was inside this mobile home when two trees toppled onto it, cutting the home into three parts.

Other residents managed to escape the wreckage without injury.

"Tornado came down and I see the twirling and I saw it hit the roof of this me over here and the trees," said Billy Davis, who witnessed the tornado.

Jeffery Haymer lost his home in the tornado. "I was in shock at the time of what had happened when I got here and arrived and seeing here it totally destroyed and lost," Davis said.

Nineteen mobile homes were damaged. The park's main office also sustained roof damage.
