JACKSON, Miss.-- The damage from the severe weather that moved through the state on Christmas day became apparent on Wednesday when National Weather Service survey crews went out around the state.
Crews from the NWS were on the road surveying the damage that injured well over a dozen people from straight-line winds and tornadoes associated with the storms.
So far, as of Thursday morning, three counties have confirmed tornadoes from the crews and they include: Lawrence, Forrest, and Jones counties.
A press release from the NWS says they will be in Clark and Lauderdale counties on Thursday to look into a possible tornado that came through that area in the afternoon hours on Tuesday.
And while a tornado in Stone County has not been confirmed officially by the NWS in their press release, WLOX has reported on the EF-2 twister and its damage that came with it.
This is the second time that Stone county his been hit in 2012 from a tornado.
