JACKSON, Missississippi - Authorities say seven people are recovering from injuries suffered after an overnight storm blew through the southeast.

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn says there were two injuries in Tallahatchie County, and one each in Scott and Coahoma counties.

Sharkey County Sheriff Lindsey Adams Jr. says three people were injured there. Lindsey says a mother and her son were injured when their mobile home was destroyed. Lindsey also says a woman in another mobile home was injured when it was destroyed.

Hundreds were without power in Arkansas. In Tennessee, some residents were forced from their homes in a mobile home park where trees were toppled.
