PEARL, MS (WLOX/AP) -

Monday morning, Governor Phil Bryant gave an update from MEMA headquarters on the storm damage across Mississippi. 

Officials are reporting downed trees across a highway and a roof blown off a house from a storm about 20 miles northwest of Hattiesburg. Covington County Emergency Manager Greg Sanford says the damage happened before dawn Monday near the town of Seminary. The area was under a tornado warning at the time, but no tornado has been confirmed.
    
Warnings were posted as a squall line moved west to east across Mississippi. Statewide, more than 6,800 power customers lacked electricity at 6 a.m. Monday.
    
Northern Mississippi residents are still cleaning up from a tornado that struck Wednesday and killed 10 people in the state.
