TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo leaders briefed the media Monday about the extent of storm damage within the city.
Luckily, the city reported no injuries and no significant damage to city property.
Storm damage on Elvis Presley Drive in Tupelo on May 3, 2021.
Several houses on Elvis Presley Drive did receive severe damage.
Victoria Egerson shot video of the storm moments before she and her husband ran inside a small storm shelter in their backyard on Ranch Road, which is off Elvis Presley Drive.
Egerson was not scared, saying she leaned her on faith.
"We were downstairs watching the news, and when he said ‘tornado emergency,’ we all took cover,” Matthew Bazzy said. “And then my dad yelled, ‘Here it comes,” and we could hear the whipping of the wind in the backyard and just crashing and banging and all kinds of stuff."
Bazzy lives on Elvis Presley Drive. He is just glad no one was hurt.
