MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The severe storms Saturday evening and into Sunday were not kind to the Mid-South.

Damage such as uprooted trees and downed power lines was reported across our viewing area.

A possible tornado in Covington snapped poles and trees throughout the town, leading to power lines down and some roads closed.
