ATLANTA, La. - The Winn Parish sheriff's office says a tornado destroyed a brick house and damaged three other residencies. No one was injured.

The sheriff's office says the twister hit about 3 p.m. Monday near the town of Atlanta. The tornado also damaged another house and two mobile homes.

The tornado occurred as a front moved through central Louisiana.

Early Tuesday, as a cold front approached southeastern Louisiana, tornado watches were posted for the region through midday. The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway was closed for a time because of high winds.
