FLORESVILLE -- The Wilson County News has received unconfirmed reports of a possible tornado or straight-line winds just after midday, causing damage to Pruski’s Feed in Kosciusko.

Hail was reported in the Dewees area.

Travelers and area residents are urged to use caution as severe thunderstorms continue to move through the area. Tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings continue to be in effect in across the area.
