Severe weather moves through Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Severe weather swept across parts of Mississippi on Thursday, dumping rain and hail and threatening to spin off tornados.

Mike Edmonston, a senior meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says hail ranging in size from golf balls to nickels was reported in areas of central and south-central Mississippi, including Rankin and Lawrence counties.

Much of the state was under tornado watches or severe thunderstorm warnings Thursday afternoon, including around Magee, which is still recovering from a powerful twister that hit last week.

Edmonston said a large line of storms broke up near the Mississippi River but redeveloped along Interstate 55, which runs north and south through the state.
