Episode Narrative Multiple rounds of storms evolved over the region starting late on the 14th and lasted through the 15th. This produced several areas of heavy rainfall across the forecast area. The region that experienced the greatest rainfall was across Northeast Louisiana, and West Central Mississippi where 5 to 8 inches fell. The other area of heavy rain was along Interstate 20, through Central and East Central Mississippi. Here, 3 to 6 inches fell. All this heavy rain resulted in flash flooding across the area. The severe weather was more scattered in nature, but what did occur was mainly damaging winds and located across the southern half of the area.
Event Narrative Heavy rainfall, between 3 and 5 inches, fell across most of northern West Carrol Parish. Numerous secondary roads were underwater along with many farm fields partially flooded. The flooded fields caused some crop damage to the young plants.
