NATCHEZ, Miss. (WLBT) - A Natchez man braved Tuesday’s severe weather and came out much richer.

The man was driving through town as storms rolled into the area. Despite a warning from his wife to turn around, he stopped at 61 Hill Food & Fuel for a few lottery tickets.

Using the quick pick option, his Mississippi Match 5 ticket hit a jackpot of $297,000.

The lucky winner did not identify himself, but is surely glad he braved the weather.
