FIRST ALERT: Over 3,000 without power after storms


Over 3,000 people are without power after the storms that hit the metro Tuesday night.

Lee Smithson, with MEMA, says there may have been nine possible tornadoes Tuesday. Nothing has been confirmed yet and no injuries have been reported. 

Over 3,000 residents are without power across the state. Two Madison County schools are without power today, Mannsdale Upper and Lower but classes will still take place. The school says they have backup measures in place.

According to Scott County Sheriff Mike Lee, many people reported seeing a tornado lift and come down intermittently on Tuesday. There were no reports of injuries, but some people were trapped in a house on Reeves Road. 

There are also reports of trees on homes on Measles Road, Reeves Road and Highway 481 near the Rankin County line.
