Storms cause damage at several spots in Miss.


TYLERTOWN, Miss. (AP) - A strong storm has caused damage in south Mississippi's Walthall and Marion counties, near the Louisiana border. 

National Weather Service officials say a barn and an office building roof were damaged south of Tylertown after 8 a.m. Monday. 

The storm moved northeast, damaging a home in Dexter and the roof of a home in Marion County south of Columbia. 

Shawn O'Neal, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Slidell, La., says surveyors will examine the damage to determine if the storm was a tornado. 

A squall line associated with a cold front downed trees and caused minor damage across Mississippi. An apartment complex roof was damaged in Louisville, a gazebo flipped over in West Point and a tree fell through a trailer near Meadville. 

Louisiana also had storm damage.
