The National Weather Service confirmed a tornado in Jackson, Mississippi.
A tornado warning was issued in the area hours earlier, notifying residents that a series of storms were moving across the state’s central area.
Wind gusts are expected to reach between 60 and 80 miles per hour, potentially causing damage.
Traveling during the storm is dangerous due to high winds that could affect vehicles of all sizes.
Power outages in the area could also be a possibility.
“The storm’s front lines are near the MS River and are entering our state from south to north,” wrote Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves on twitter.
“Power outages seen in Wilkinson, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln and Claiborne counties in SW MS due to high winds.”
The governor shared images of a fallen tree in the grounds of the mansion.
“Be safe friends!!”
