JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Authorities say a suspected tornado touched down in a Mississippi town, leaving extensive damage and at least one person seriously hurt.

Police in Clinton said Friday that the tornado caused widespread damage. Jim Pollard with American Medical Response said seven people were taken to hospitals, including an elderly woman with life-threatening injuries.

Authorities planned to continue search and rescue efforts in Clinton, about 10 miles from Jackson.

The National Weather Service did not immediately confirm that a tornado had touched down.

Heavy rain and hail were reported elsewhere in the state as the spring storm system pushed east.

There also were reports of damage to a few mobile homes and other structures. The same line of storms has left at least nine people dead across the U.S.
