Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracked northeast from Western Kansas into the Great Lakes during the time period from April 2nd-April 4th, 2011. As a result, a trailing cold front moved through the Mid-South during the morning and early afternoon hours of April 4th. A moist and unstable atmosphere was in place ahead of the front creating a favorable environment for thunderstorm development. Numerous showers and thunderstorms formed along the front by mid-morning. Some storms became severe producing large hail, damaging winds, flash flooding and isolated tornadoes.
Event Narrative Straight line winds blew up to 40 power poles down along Highway 61 across Tunica County. Numerous trees were also blown down and minor roof damage occurred on several homes. The back wall of the North Tunica Fire Department was blown in resulting in one damaged vehicle.
