A Bolton man was in fair condition in a Jackson hospital this morning after falling 40 to 50 feet from a truck bucket from which he was cutting limbs Monday.

Aundra Griffin, 47, of Save A Lot Tree Service, was working in the backyard of a home in the 2500 block of Dana Road when rescue workers and police were called at 2:56 p.m., police Lt. Bobby Stewart said.

Trees were reported down in multiple locations in Vicksburg and Warren County following bad weather Monday that produced tornadoes in the Mississippi Delta.
