7:39. the storms we are tracking and the heaviest storms what's left in our area lingering over southeastern pickens county. the strong damaging winds moved to fayette county and moving quickly to the i-65 corridor. still light to moderate and some cases heavy rain continues over the golden an embedded squall line. triang. with this rain, considering how much rain we have already seen you have ponding on roadways and take it slow. back edge across it things are winding down as we speak. the clouds aren't going anywhere. we will talk about the forecast in a moment. i want to show you overnight how this played out. >> and we will give you reports and markers, areas where we have seen tree damage. parts of the storm is a general path. i will take reports off for a second so you can see how this has -- if i can see the reports there, how this is played out. >> you look at the radar here. you have this circulation there that goes from grenada and up towards red bay. in those areas is where most of our downed tree reports have been seen. we will look at pictures later in the 8:00 hour, wtva 9 and we will get live reports from emma packer in the field. the storms moved on and we will deal with clean up at this point and inconveniences of the roads that have been blocked by a lot of the trees. >> the storms moved through pretty quickly and the rains lying down to an extent. we have managed to see less rainfall than you probably expect. of course we did forecast 1-3 inches of rain and look what we've got most areas picking up 1-3 inches of rain. i am not convinced it was .7 in tupelo. i think we saw more than that at the airport. some spots saw maybe less because the storms are moving faster. it wasn't the slow-moving stuff like the past that causes flash flooding. thankfully we are not seeing much of that. >> and 61 starkville. temperatures are a little cooler staying in the 60s and starkville, and not convinced and the clouds it is tough to warm up when the winds switch out of the northwest. and winds will switch later in the day. >> i will point out rain chances that drop-off dramatically after lunch time isolated stuff going through the night tonight. >>> straight ahead we will talk more about what you can expect through the rest of the workweek. looks like in terms of rainfall for the most part things winding down into the weekend and looks drier for saturday. more storms could return for election day. we will talk about that as well. of course we will have more pictures and reports of folks getting out and about now that the sun is up and folks seeing the damage that occurred in the area. they are sending the pictures and we will have those shortly. >>> you are watching wtva 9 news and what we are looking at is pictures and damage from wheeler school. we appreciate dom for sending in the pictures. rough start to the day. looks like roofing material and maybe the walkway that's blown off with the storms we had. we had trees damaged by the wind and not exactly the strongest and these pictures from wheeler. a reminder this school day starting rough for many. >> pictures of damage to a storage facility. javier sending this in. it shows cans scattered all over the backyard. a reminder wind can get under the structure causing significant damage and seek shelter in a sturdier shelter. >> with these pictures here tree on a vehicle there causing significant damage to multiple vehicles at her location still getting the exact and numerous trees in the area causing significant power outages all the way through the alabama area looking towards red bay. big trees down in some cases. are they tornado damage? that's something we are still working to figure out. this picture coming from amber in the long view road area near pontotoc of damage. damage reports started in calhoun county. these pictures here showing trees down into a structure early on. if you haven't heard your location listed and noting you doily have significant damage or have had damage accepted the pictures to weather@wtva.com and we will pass those along and to the red bay alabama area. an example of some of the wind damage there. lots of tree limbs down and certainly causing slowdowns. we do expect if you are traveling, you should expect to have those throughout the morning. >> those are the headlines. as joe mentioned, we continue to watch weather wind down as rainfall continues to move out of the area, joel. >>> absolutely. if we can switch to max 1. this is a computer i am working from. what we have now is heavy rainfall over pickens county and light to moderate heavy rainfall on highway 45. things are winding down for the most part. impacts still being felt in the way of damage being seen at this point. trees that are down on area roadways. you want to check. we will keep you updated on live local traffic throughout the morning. of course if there's anything you need to know or roads blocked. good news, most rain starting to wind down west of the parkway. calhoun county where we got damage, a lot of damage reports in calhoun county look like the clouds and do you have another report? >> we continue to get damage reports and most classified as wind damage. can you see a clear line from greenwood towards the red bay area where this damage has come in. >> let me make a quick side note. matt, i messaged you this and i noticed this feature and we will show you what i am talking about in a moment. circulation this morning. our models pinpoint it. >> absolutely. >> it was during the evening. and computer modeling has gotten so good. >> it occurred to me that's what it was. i messaged and saying is this a situation like 2016 or 2017 where we had a white glow early in the morning and the area was hit hard from there. a different situation and looking similar on radar. but, you know modeling has gotten better. what will you see about it. >> we cannot verify it was tornado damage. but you have a long lived storm cell and damage depicted on radar for a long time. it is reasonable we had not one but multiple touchdowns. >> let's switch to velocity. it is green and reds. green and reds showing the direction of the wind and brightness showing the speed of the wind. the brighter the color the stronger the wind. >> we will loop the same storm from bruce. we might be able to step out in front of the map to show you what we are talking about. back in time over calhoun county you can see there's this circulation there briefly. a tornado warning earlier in pontotoc county seems like forever ago and moved to red bay and we had tornado warnings up that way. again that was a long lived circulation. wouldn't call it rotation. the difference between circulation and rotation, the way i described it, rotation is more in terms of a tornado. circulation this is much more broad and you can see circulation with the storm all together. that moved on through. it did damage and of course we will bring you more pictures throughout the morning. we'll be right back. happy thursday! widespread heavy rainfall will move through the region early this morning with an embedded squall line. we have breaking news into our studio... we have breaking news into our studio... one person has died after a tree >>> fell on a car on highway 61 near highway 4-62... a student from alcorn state studio.

several these storms will move across s the region, likely moving east w of us 45 by you areas hard h sunrise.it overnight where we got the then they should be out of the region by mid-morning.
