PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

All the severe weather left behind damaged homes, downed trees and flooded roadways. Pearl River County took a beating Tuesday.

Several tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for the county. Severe weather could be felt all over Pearl River County in the form of strong wind and heavy rain.

The day got off to a calm start with light rain slowly picking up strength during the afternoon hours.

By 4 p.m., the worst of the weather arrived, flooding a pasture on Henleyfield McNeill Rd. Hwy. 11 became a driver’s nightmare as water covered the blacktop.

In the Henleyfield community, a couple’s' vacant camper trailer was demolished.

"You came to my door telling me my trailer was out in the road. Actually, just a few minutes before that, there was a big noise on my back porch, here on the back patio," said Pearl Langston of Pearl River County.

A pile of rubble in the middle of the street was once Pearl and JB Langston's camper trailer. Witnesses said they saw the trailer picked up from its slab and thrown onto East Twin Oaks Ln.

Despite losing her trailer, Langston said she's happy to be alive.

"We've been blessed. God has truly blessed us," Langston said.

According to the Pearl River County Emergency Management Agency, there were about a dozen structures damaged, several downed trees blocking roadways and some flooded streets.
