    A vehicle sits among debris near the home of Antonio Yzaguirre, 70, and his wife, Ann Yzaguirre, 69, Thursday, Dec. 24, 2015, near Linden, Tenn. The couple was found dead after severe storms went through the area Wednesday night. Several people were killed in Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas as spring-like storms mixed with unseasonably warm weather spawned rare Christmastime tornadoes in the South.

    Parts of Mississippi and Tennessee were cleaning up and assessing the damage Friday after tornadoes and severe storms swept through the region, leaving at least 14 people dead, NBC News reported.

    Seven people were killed in Mississippi, including a 7-year-old who was in a van with his family on Highway 7 in Holly Springs when storms ripped through the town, Marshall County Coroner James Anderson said. NBC affiliate WMC identified the boy as Nicolas Pulmory.

    Authorities in Benton County, Mississippi, have identified four people who were killed in storms and at least one tornado on Wednesday, and said authorities continued to look for one person who remained missing.

    Among the dead were Max Croxton, 69, and Ellen Croxton, 67, whose home was destroyed in the north part of the county, and William Crawford, 67, and Patricia Williams, 58, whose home in the central part of the county was destroyed, the sheriff's office said.
