NATCHEZ — The Miss-Lou area is under a tornado watch until 9 p.m. tonight.

Janae Elkins, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Jackson, said Natchez and Adams County can expect potentially damaging winds, hail and flash flooding with possible tornadoes.

“It’s hard to say exactly when the storm will have moved through. We have a line that will push through, but we also have the possibility of discreet cells associated with that line,” Elkins said.
