PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) -- Lynn Spears always worried about the tall pines growing near her house.
Her fears would be fully realized during the night early Wednesday.
"It wasn't a train sound. It was just a loud noise, and then when we got into the closet, I heard the boom of that tree hitting the top of the house," Spears said.
She said a voice from above saved her.
"The Lord just woke me up. I got up and ran to the closet with my dog, and the next thing I know, I got a big tree across the middle of my house. It was terrible. It was terrible," Spears added.
It was terrible for others like Tennelle Benson.
A rotted oak tree fell on her vehicle.
"I went outside and actually saw all of it, and I just burst out crying because that car has so many memories in it," Benson said.
Pontotoc County Emergency Management Agency Director Ricky Jaggers and other county officials are documenting all reports of damage from the severe weather that came through the area.
