Episode Narrative A subtle upper level disturbance combined with a very unstable air mass to produce numerous showers and thunderstorms across the Mid South on May 24th, 2010. As convection developed throughout the day outflow boundaries were created that resulted in additional development until nearly all of the Mid South experienced at least some precipitation by sunset. After sunset the storms dissipated. Some of the storms were severe with large hail, damaging winds and flash flooding.
Event Narrative Straight line winds knocked down power lines on the north side of Tunica. The winds also stripped away part of the North Tunica Fire Department's facade.
