            The funeral of Deputy First Class Hilery Mayo Jr. of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office Wednesday, June 13, 2007. He was killed, while on duty, Saturday, June 9, 2007, in a vehicle accident.

            Two St. Tammany Parish sheriff's deputies were injured Wednesday in Covington when a tree fell on a patrol car during the funeral procession for a fellow deputy who died in a weekend auto accident.



            The names and conditions of the deputies have not been released by the Sheriff's Office. The officers were taken to St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

            The miles-long funeral procession for Deputy Hilery Mayo was moving through Covington when a violent thunderstorm swept through St. Tammany Parish and knocked down numerous trees from Slidell to Covington. A large pine tree hit a patrol car on 21st Avenue, crushing the top of the vehicle.

            The storms moved into St. Tammany from north to south at about 4 p.m.

            Many trees are reported down in the area around Fielding Funeral Home and along 15th Avenue on the western side of Covington.

            The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway was closed from 4:20 to 4:58 p.m., with wind gusts at 50 to 60 mph.

            Hail the size of pennies, or 3/4 inch in diameter, fell at the Slidell office of the National Weather Service, where the thunderstorm blew gusts of 51 mph, according to meterologist Mike Shields. The office issued a severe thunderstorm warning, he said.

            Meterologist Jim Vasilj said the storm didn't spawn a twister. "It wasn't a tornado; it looks like it was just severe thunderstorm winds," he said.

            Quarter-inch size hail also fell in and around Covington at about 4 p.m., he added, but he had no estimate for wind speeds in the Covington area.
