Storms, possible tornado close some Mississippi schools

Strong storms and a possible tornado have prompted a Mississippi school district to cancel Thursday classes.

The Natchez Democrat reports the Natchez-Adams School District took the action after a wave of powerful storms damaged homes and tore down trees in the area.

Entergy Corp. said more than 3,000 customers around Morgantown and Natchez were without power early Thursday.
