New Orleans (AP) A second night of storms in the south battered southern Louisiana, toppling power lines and trees, damaging homes, and injuring at least one person.

The National Weather Service received reports of at least two possible tornado touchdowns in Louisiana late Thursday and early Friday.

More than 9,000 customers had no power. Flash flood warnings were issued as water covered sections of roads in southeastern coastal parishes and the New Orleans area.

Forecaster Tim Erickson says one person was reported injured in Ascension Parish, along with a home destroyed and two others damaged. In assumption and St. John Parishes, mobile homes were damaged.

A day earlier, a tornado struck the Mississippi town of Magee, injuring 28 and flattening dozens of homes and businesses.
