JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — As heavy storms moved throughout the Metro area, down trees damaged some homes.
A tree fell on a house on Ridgeway Street in Jackson Tuesday night.
The family that lives there said they are forced to stay somewhere else because of the damage.
Felicia Ellis, who lives there, said around 9 p.m., she was getting ready to go to work and her children were getting ready to go to bed, but she heard a strange sound.
“All of a sudden I heard a crack and a loud boom and it went dark,” she said. “And I don’t like the dark and I told my son, I think a tree fell.”
Branches of the tree went through the roof causing parts of the ceiling to collapse.
Luckily, no one was injured.
