Storms down trees in county

Ben Hillyer | The NAtchez Democrat — The view from Virginia Hargrave’s front door is filled with branches from a large oak tree that fell on top of her Mullins Road home Monday.

NATCHEZ — Fallen trees and limbs damaged two houses and blocked five streets Monday after an hour-long thunderstorm blew through Adams County.

Emergency Management Director Stan Owens said spotty power outages were also reported across the county.

Ben Hillyer | The Natchez Democrat — A large oak tree was uprooted in Virginia Hargraves backyard on Mullins Road in Adams County Monday evening as a squall line of storms moved over the region.

Owens said the storm entered Adams County in the west, delivering the brunt of the rain and high winds north of U.S. 84.

Streets or roads reportedly blocked include Dunbarton, Kingston and Marion roads and in two places on North Palestine Road.

A fallen oak tree damaged a house on Mullins Road, and a fallen tree reportedly caused minor injuries to another house, Owens said.

He said he also responded to fallen trees on Duck Pond Road.

Owens said a Morgantown rain gauge had 1.08 inches of rain, which fell mostly within one hour.

“Other than (reported damages) we threaded the needle again,” Owens said.

“We are very fortunate considering some of damages across the state.”

Damages from Monday’s severe whether were reported to MEMA in 24 counties across the state, including Adams County.
