Call it the tale of two storms: Just as about 2 inches of snow was about to fall in northern Mississippi, two tornadoes tore through parts of south Mississippi.

The National Weather Service in Jackson confirmed Friday that at least two tornadoes tore through Lamar and Simpson counties as a result of Thursday night's storm. No injuries were reported.

Meteorologist Brad Bryant said an EF-2 tornado touched down in Lamar County while experts ranked the one that hit Simpson County as an EF-1. Bryant said the Lamar County tornado left a 6.6 mile-path of destruction, while the Simpson County one was shorter at 3.9 miles.

Both tornadoes damaged homes in the area, uprooted trees and downed power lines.

Bryant said survey crews were in the areas Friday to get a better handle on what happened.
