Two different tornado warnings Saturday night had Jennings County area residents on pins and needles for several hours. Fortunately, there were no tornado touchdowns in the county, according to officials.

However, a series of torrential rains pounded Jennings County starting Saturday and into Sunday, flooding roads and causing widespread damage.

"We've had a lot of road washouts in our area," said Brian Ponsler, Jennings County Highway Department's District 3 foreman, as he and a crew worked to fill gaping holes in roadways near Zenas left by the flash flooding.

Saturday evening's storms forced the postponement of several events on the closing night of the Jennings County Fair. The Fireworks Extravaganza pyrotechnics display, concert by Back in the Day and karaoke contest have been reset for Saturday, June 22, at the fairgrounds.
