SHARKEY COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – At least three people were hurt when severe storms moved through Sharkey County early Wednesday morning.
Sharkey County deputies said neighbors were able to help get the man out of his home. He was taken to a Jackson hospital for treatment. There’s no word on his condition.
Two other people were also injured and taken to a Greenville hospital with minor injuries.
According to investigators, there is damage in the town of Anguilla. The storms damaged the Mason Trailer Park on Highway 61.
Five homes were damaged in the storm. One woman said she was in her truck when the wind lifted her home and flipped it on its side.
Others who live in the mobile home park said they are devastated by the damage, but they are lucky to be alive.
“All I could do is drop, drop my head and cry and see that the houses were destroyed and that everybody mostly lost everything, but most of all, thank God they got their life ’cause they can get another house, but they couldn’t get another life,” said Bobbie Jackson.
Emergency crews helped get food, water and clothing to residents.
The National Weather Service (NWS) will survey the damage in the area to determine if Sharkey County was hit by a tornado.
