Rain and storms moved through the Mid-South on Wednesday. With them came Flash Flood Warnings and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Quarter-sized hail even fell in parts of North Mississippi.

Weather Damage and Power Outages

There are reports of trees being down across the Mid-South, with several in the Bartlett area.

In South Memphis, a tree fell on a home near the intersection of South Orleans Street and Trigg Avenue. No one was hurt, but several children were inside the home at the time.

A tree blocked traffic near Scenic Highway and New Allen Road, where our photographer and satellite truck operator Michael Wheeler helped pull an SUV out of the mud in the median.

The slippery roads have led to several accidents, including a car getting knocked off the road at I-40 and Danny Thomas Boulevard.

Power for more than 3,500 MLGW customers was knocked out at one point. As of 5:30 a.m. Thursday, that number dropped to just under 600. Click here to see the latest MLGW outage map.

Pop up storms could continue through the weekend.
