HOLMES COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Storms hit Holmes and Attala Counties around 2:00 Wednesday morning and caused downed trees and widespread power outages.

The Holmes County Sheriff's Department was hit hard.

Their main communication tower was bent completely over, as well as their backup communication tower.

The roof of the main building sustained damage as well as the jail and the structures around it.It was tough for dispatchers to communicate with deputies.

An AT&T tower was knocked out too, so cell phone use was hampered.

This lead to the injury of a deputy.

"One deputy was coming to block off a road, they didn't tell hil the road already had trees down, he ran into a tree, he's at home now trying to recover, tore his automobile up," Holmes Co. Sheriff Willie March said.

That deputy has a knot on the head and a sore shoulder.

Attala County saw plenty of damage as well.
