JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The National Weather Service in Jackson says it’s counted six confirmed tornadoes so far in the areas of the state it monitors.

Eric Carpenter, a meteorologist with the weather service’s Jackson office responsible for central Mississippi, says they will be sending out teams Wednesday to survey the damage.

He says one tornado extended from eastern Rankin to Scott County. One stretched from Winston to Noxubee County. Others touched down in Noxubee, Oktibveha, Lowndes and Clay counties.

He says some major roof damage was reported to homes but so far that appeared to be the worst of the damage.

Greg Flynn, from the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, says so far no injuries have been reported.
