WALNUT GROVE, Miss. (WJTV) – A Walnut Grove couple spotted ominous clouds Tuesday afternoon and had to quickly take shelter inside their house.

Cynthia Stuart says she and her husband were tracking the severe weather Tuesday.

She says they went outside to see if the approaching storm was just the wind or if it was a tornado. She says they saw a rotation in the sky and quickly took cover in their home, which is off Highway 35 south.

Stuart says she already had some emergency supplies ready if things got bad.

She tells us that neither she or her husband were hurt as the storm passed through.

We spoke to officials in Walnut Grove Tuesday evening. They tell us there was some damage in parts of town, but they say none of it was major.

We’re told some trees near the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility were snapped.
