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.
