JACKSON, Miss.--Most of the heaviest rainfall was west of the Mississippi River Thursday, but the Magnolia State got its fair share. Some places in the extreme western parts, near the river, got an estimated four to five inches. That rainfall caused the most trouble in Warren County, with several reported mud slides and flooding.
The weather also had trees down across Interstate 20 at one point, backing up traffic as crews worked to clear the roadway.
Flood warnings for the Big Black River continue as a result of the rainfall. That's for the portion at Bovina, affecting Hinds and Warren counties. The National Weather Service also had a flood warning posted for the Homochitto River, affecting Rosetta in Franklin County.
Here is the rest of the warning from the National Weather Service page:
