                    **Breaking news: Tornado touches down

                    A tornado touched down east of Oxford at about 1:50 p.m., damaging several homes and knocking trees down across many roads in this part of Lafayette County. Some reports also have come in regarding residents trapped in their homes. The tornado’s path appears to have started near the Highway 7/9 split, moving northeast to just west of Yocona, and it then proceeded on across Highway 6 East. Houses on county roads 334, 469, 415, 421 and 471 reportedly sustained damage. Power lines have also been blown down. There were so many reports for assistance that emergency crews were requesting additional help to remove trees to allow for emergency vehicles to respond.

                    See video of damage along Highway 6 and CR 419 below.
