RANKIN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

More damage is being revealed in the metro area in the days following Monday's fatal storm system. Some homes and businesses took major hits along the twister's path in Pearl and even the Capital City.

The EF-3 tornado's winds battered businesses along Highway 468 and South Pearson Road, where giant trees were toppled, crushing buildings like Willie's Wheels and K & K Upholstery.

On nearby Childre Road, U.S. Food's expansive facility was left with gaping holes, a peeled roof and metal ripped from the structure. Twisted metal sheets were found hundreds of yards away.

James Kershaw was working in an upholstery business when a 70 foot pecan tree landed on the building. The Vietnam veteran has operated in Pearl for 10 years.

"Since I've been here this is the second tornado," said Kershaw. "We had the hail last year and then we had the hurricane. So it's time for me to move."

On Old Whitfield Road, more homes were damaged. Tree are now implanted in roofs. Fences are mangled and property was destroyed around the area.

Wednesday, Entergy trucks were a welcome sight for Milton Brown who lost power Monday night. He has lived on Old Whitfield Road since 1965 and said this is the worse damage he's seen.

A tree fell through the center of his neighbor's home but he said no one was injured.

"I heard the wind blowing real heavy and it was then I heard a crack," said Brown whose riding lawn mower was crushed by one of the three fallen trees on his property. "And after I heard the crack, the house kinda shook a little bit."

Even south Jackson residents felt Mother Nature's wrath. A giant tree on Raymond Road fell on a home with one man and his children huddled in the dark.

Lisa Curry lives next door and said she heard a loud boom as the storm moved across the area. Three trees fell in her back yard. The largest toppled over, taking down two smaller trees. They narrowly missed her house.

"It felt like an earthquake," said Curry who has lived on Raymond Road for 13 years. "When I heard the tree fall I immediately got up. Me and my children were in the house and I yelled out to the guy next door and asked him was he ok. He told me everything was ok."

In the Garden Park Subdivision in south Jackson many homes were sparred serious damage along the tree lined streets. On Camillia Lane winds uprooted a tree that split a house for sale in the 2,000 block.

Cleanup also continues on Flowers Drive where many of fallen trees have been moved.

According to the National Weather Service, the tornado's track began along I-55 north and  Elton Road in Jackson and ended near the Scott county line.

Meteorologist and Senior Forecaster Chad Entremont said the worst damage was on the north side of Richland and the south end of Pearl.
