Thunderstorms across metro Friday night

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It has been a rough night outside. The storm system that has flattened several communities across the mid west is now moving across Central Mississippi.

Torrential rain wrecked havoc on the roadways. This Tahoe ran off the I-55 Frontage Road and hit three cars in the parking lot of the olive garden restaurant in north Jackson. The driver was questioned at the scene. The other vehicles were unoccupied at the time of the crash.

No one was hurt. Meanwhile, in Canton there was a driving rain storm but no reports of damage.

In Madison, travel was treacherous on I-55 as several motorists used their flashers while driving slowly through the downpour or pulled off the road to avoid the hazardous rain.

Before the storm hit the lightening lit up the night sky over Madison County.

As of news time, there were no reports of storm damage in the county.
