NATCHEZ — A line of strong to severe thunderstorms came through the Miss-Lou Monday afternoon, forcing local and area high school baseball and softball game to be postponed.

Natchez High School’s softball team was scheduled to host Sacred Heart from Hattiesburg in a non-region game at the Natchez-Adams Girls Softball Complex. But the junior varsity and varsity games were canceled before the storms arrived.
