Mike Edmonston with the National Weather Service in Jackson says the storms will continue Monday to produce heavy downpours, hail and strong winds.

Edmonston says the storms brought down trees in the Starkville-Columbus area. He says a tree was blown down on the Mississippi State University campus by winds estimated at 50 mph.

Edmonston says the hail size has ranged from a fourth of an inch to three quarters of an inch, with one report of 2-inch hail in the Grenada area.

A flash flood warning is in effect until 8:45 a.m. for much of northern Mississippi.

No injuries or structure damage have been reported.
