The mayor’s office warned residents to stay home following the tornado so crews can assess damage.
Earlier Sunday, another damaging tornado touched down in Yazoo City, about 170 miles southwest of Tupelo, as part of a round of storms sweeping across the Southeast.
“We do not have any injuries reported but have numerous damaged structures,” Yazoo County Emergency Management Director Jack Willingham told CNN in an email.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information comes available.
