RIPLEY, Miss. (WTVA) - Storms swept through northeast Mississippi on Thursday leaving behind storm damage in some areas.

William Baker was one of many people whose home suffered damage after high winds caused trees to crash into his home.

"I heard this loud crash, and I looked out the window, and I saw it falling," Baker said.
Viewers sent in photos from Saltillo that showed a car trapped under a carport after a tree fell on top of it.

"I was laying in the bed just resting watching TV, and here it comes and all this noise," Baker said.

He said just like many others who endured the storm, what he saw when he went out to see what had happened was even more shocking.

"That giant tree just fell, all this happened at the same time," Baker added.

Some trees across the area were even snapped in half by the wind.

"There were some tremendous winds coming through," Baker told WTVA.
