Of the ten pronouced dead, five were killed in Choctaw County, one was in Holmes County and four were from Yazoo County, Miss., both the Times and USA Today said, where Governor Haley Barbour told The Associated Press there was "utter obliteration."
Two of the victims were children, though aside from those who perished, thousands of others are affected either by loss of property or injuries, USA Today said.
Many of the injured are being treated at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, the Times said.
In Warren County, Miss. alone, at least 30 homes were rendered uninhabitable by the storms, the Times said, stirring the memory of Hurricane Katrina for many.
