Damage reported in northwest Neshoba
Managing Editor

The tornado downed several trees and damaged many structures in the Arlington community before crossing into Winston County, Emergency Management Director Jeff Mayo said.

A preliminary assessment in the county showed nine structures with minor damage and two with major, though Mayo said those numbers were expected to rise.

One business in the county also received minor damage.

Trees were downed on several county roads and on Mississippi 19 north, which was blocked to traffic for an extended period shortly after the tornado passed through.

Volunteer firefighters, county road department crews and others cleared the roadways.

In addition, the Neshoba County Fairgrounds sustained some damage after the storm system moved through the county.

Fair Manager Doug Johnson said Cabin 313 had three-fourths of its metal roof was blown away. Three other cabins sustained minor tin damage on the roof.

No structural damage was reported, Johnson said.

Two big trees on the south end of Founder's Square snapped about 15 to 20 feet up, knocking down a night light pole and line.

A sweet gum tree fell over the chain link fence just north of gate 3, Johnson said.

No injuries were reported in Neshoba County during Monday's storm.
