The mayor’s office warned residents to stay home after the tornado so the crew could assess the damage.
“Calhoun City was hit hard tonight, light poles were broken, trees in a few homes, trees on vehicles, damaged many businesses. Fortunately, we have no reports of injuries at this time,” the post. “We ask you to stay off the road right now, emergency workers are working urgently to open the road as soon as possible.”
On Sunday, another devastating tornado touched the city of Yasu, 170 miles southwest of Tupelo, as part of a storm that swept across the southeast.
“We don’t have any reports of injuries, but there are a lot of damaged structures,” Jack Willingham, Yazoo County’s director of emergency management, told CNN in an email.
This is an evolving story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
