There's also a string of damage through parts of Pearl. This damage came around 6 p.m. news time when Jackson was also under a tornado warning.
"The storm passed through the Highlands mobile home park, damaging homes and injuring several others. AMR spokesperson Jim Pollard said they transported three people with non life-threatening injuries.
Pearl Police Detective Jake Windham said approximately 25 mobile homes were damaged or destroyed.
Despite the widespread damage, he said there were no fatalities from the apparent tornado and everyone in the trailer park is accounted for.
Authorities continued searching for anyone trapped in the piles of debris that littered homes along Glenburgh Drive and Hardwick Drive."
Further south, in Richland, an 18-wheeler accident that closed all lanes of Highway 49. It took almost two hours to clean up the accident and reopen the lanes.
One person was killed in a rollover accident in Richland. The weather may have been a factor in both accidents.
The storms have moved to east Mississippi and into Alabama, but 33 Mississippi counties remain under a Tornado Watch until 3 a.m.
