As we’ve said, weather is frightening! And sometimes deadly..
A huge storm in the Southeast US is proving it.
One person died when storms hit Lamar County in Mississippi, county Emergency Management Director James Smith told CNN. The death occurred at a mobile home between Baxterville and Purvis, he said. There were no reports of other deaths or injuries in the county, according to Smith.
Rough weather was rumbling across the Gulf Coast states on Tuesday evening, with reports of tornadoes in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Multiple people were injured as storms hit St. James Parish, about 50 miles west of New Orleans, Sgt. Steven Brignac with the sheriff’s office told CNN. Brignac had no estimate on the number of people injured or missing, but said emergency responders were coming from across the state.
