SUMRALL, MS (WDAM) - Sumrall residents are thankful Wednesday morning as they begin clean-up and emergency officials assess damage from Tuesday's tornado.

Lamar County Emergency Management Director said it's too early to know how much damage there really was done.

"Maybe today after looking at the track to see if they can tell whether it was rotation or straight line winds," Smith said. "We did have one eye witness in this area that did see a funnel in the air, but nothing on the ground."

The Kids Kampus Daycare on Highway 42 and 12 homes in The Oaks Subdivision were damaged, but most of the damage in Sumrall was to roofs, siding, windows and fences. 

Kid's Kampus Daycare's owner said they would be open on Monday at the Sumrall United Methodist Church and will remain there until their building is repaired.

There were no injuries were reported.
