After waterspout, kids, adults left stranded on Petit Bois Island

MISSISSIPPI SOUND (WLOX) - Nine children and four adults were rescued from Petit Bois Island Saturday by Jackson County Marine Patrol after the passing severe weather left them stranded. Four others were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard.

According to Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell, witnesses reported seeing a waterspout capsize two anchored watercrafts just after 3pm. That left the boaters stranded on the island.

Luckily, no one was injured.
