(CNN) - People in northern Mississippi and Alabama huddled in hallways and basements as a string of tornadoes ripped through their states Monday, a day after another line of storms killed 16 people to their west.
Several buildings were destroyed or damaged in Tupelo, Mississippi, as a suspected twister hit the north and west sides of that city.
"We've got everybody in place, just ready to respond when needed, and as needed," Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton told CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
Residents have been warned that this is not the time to "take a risk, to go somewhere unnecessarily, it's the time to be in your home in a safe room in your home," said Shelton.
