A strong line of thunderstorms moved across Louisiana and Mississippi early Monday morning, bringing with it heavy rains and high winds.

There were reports of downed trees and power outages. Some of the trees blocked roadways, sending crews out to remove them.

Viewers reported damage at CEI in Walker. One said there was damage to a building, a utility pole is broken and two tractor trailers overturned.

Several tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued as the storms quickly moved eastward across the area. There were no reports of any actual tornadoes.

All of the warnings in the WAFB viewing area were canceled by 4 a.m. By 6:15 a.m., the severe weather threat had ended for all of southeast Louisiana.
