Millington residents displaced by severe storm

(WMC-TV) – Dozens of families at a Millington mobile home park were evacuated after Wednesday night's storm. Now, the residents in the hard hit area are assessing the damage.

The Millington Fire Department says roughly five mobile homes were damaged in the storm. The heavy winds and rain also knocked down a fence on Highway 51.

Fortunately, nobody was injured.

Many people Action News 5 spoke to say they had to take cover.

"We heard the tree came down through the ceiling over the phone we heard everything. We tried to get out here as fast as possible," said Carl Kent.

"It's very sad what everybody lost and everybody and their house got tore up because of all the damage and everything," said Ashley Santibanez.

At least two families displaced by the storm damage are being assisted by the Red Cross.
