HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

All tornado warnings in South Mississippi have expired. The National Weather Service in New Orleans issued warnings for parts of Hancock and Harrison counties this afternoon.

The last warning in Harrison County expired at 4 p.m. We have reports of light damage on Bell Creek Rd. near Hwy. 53 in Harrison County.

Harrison County EOC Director Rupert Lacy said the roof was blown off a shed and a trailer was slightly damaged. There are also a few reports of trees down in the area.

Hancock County EOC Director Brain Adam said officials are checking out reports of a possible tornado in the Dedeaux community. The warning for that area expired at 3:30 p.m.

The NWS tweeted a picture of what appears to be a small tornado and said a storm survey will be conducted Wednesday morning near the Kiln.

The WLOX First Alert Weather Team will continue to monitor these storms as they continue to move east through Harrison County and into Jackson County.
