COAHOMA COUNTY -

The storms passing through Mississippi have claimed the life of a Coahoma County man.

According to Coahoma County EMA Director Johnny Tarzi, a man was inside his trailer along Highway 1 near Rena Lara when a strong wind picked up the trailer and threw it into the trees. Tarzi says the man died at the scene.

Coahoma County Coroner Scotty Meredith identifies the victim as John Sanders.

Right now, it's not clear if it was a tornado or strong straight-line winds, but Tarzi says the county was under a tornado warning at the time.
