Episode Narrative During the morning and afternoon of the 15th a strong cold front came across the region from the northwest. A moist and unstable airmass intercepted the cold front. This resulted in some isolated severe storms across northeast Louisiana as well as an EF0 tornado in Tensas Parish. There was some nickel size hail and thunderstorm wind damage across portions of northeast Louisiana. With the tornado A mobile home rolled over as well as the west sides of a commercial building was blown out with some roof tiles. Also isolated heavy storms caused some flooding across some fields across southern Madison and northern Tensas parishes.
Event Narrative A storage building along highway 65 was damaged. The Utility company reported power lines were blown down on the northwest and southeast sides of Lake Bruin. A few trees and many large limbs were blown down as well around the area.
