YAZOO CITY, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi authorities say a missing child in Yazoo City is believed to have been swept away by flash flood waters.

While authorities worked to find the 9-year-old girl missing since Sunday night, the state was also coping with heavy rains and storms that continued early Monday.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said a possible tornado damaged homes in Covington County, where seven minor injuries were reported. Wind damage also was reported in Neshoba County.

Published reports say the Yazoo City girl was last seen around 7 p.m. Sunday. She is believed to have been caught up in flood waters outside the back door of her parents' house.

On Sunday, street flooding plagued Jackson. Flood advisories for much of the state continued into Monday.
