Episode Narrative A strong cold front and a broken line of strong to severe storms moved across central Mississippi during the afternoon of March 14. This system produced some scattered thunderstorm wind damage mainly in the form of downed trees and power lines. There was one lone tornado which occurred southeast of Brandon in Rankin County.
Event Narrative This narrow tornado tracked through the Robinhood subdivision and ended just west of Highway 18 near Mohr Road. Trees were snapped and uprooted in a convergent pattern and two barns had roof and siding damage. The tornado was 25 to 50 yards wide for most of its path, but expanded to a maximum of 75 yards just before dissipation. Maximum winds were around 85 mph.
