SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - Parts of DeSoto County are drying out after storms brought heavy rain and some flooding to parts of the county.

Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency Thursday after severe storms pounded the northern part of the state and Tennessee.

The DeSoto County Emergency Management officials said homes and roads were flooded, primarily in the cities of Southaven and Horn Lake.

The National Weather Service reported that five to seven inches of rain fell in DeSoto County over a 12-hour period.

No injuries were reported, but some residents of Savannah Creek apartments in Southaven were evacuated and taken to a nearby shelter.
