Authorities say they have restored power to nearly everyone in the Mississippi town of Columbia following a series of powerful tornadoes that hit the town.

Meanwhile, Marion County coroner Norma Williamson tells The Hattiesburg American that 33-year-old Amber Sumrall of Sandy Hook was one of the four people killed in Tuesday's storm. She died after being trapped in a beauty salon.

Elizabeth Bordelon says her grandmother, 73-year-old MaryJean Sartin, died in their trailer home.

WAPT-TV reports that Leonardo Drummond and Josie White were killed when the tornado hit their mobile home in Laurel. The property's owners tell the station they asked the couple to come to their house to be safe, but Drummond and White decided to stay.
