Episode Narrative A significant severe weather event and tornado outbreak affected portions of central Mississippi, southeastern Arkansas, and northeastern Louisiana on April 15th. This event evolved slowly and brought multiple rounds of severe storms to the region between 3 am and 9 pm. A total of 15 tornadoes occurred during this event with 3 being of the strong variety (EF2 or EF3). In addition, numerous reports of damaging straight-line winds occurred as well as instances of large hail. Some of the strongest storms produced hail from golf ball to baseball size. There were two reports of softball sized hail as well, one in Clarke County and the other in Kemper County. In addition to the severe storms, significant flash flooding occurred over northern portions of central Mississippi.
Event Narrative This strong tornado touched down along County Road 4101 in the Possumneck community and immediately produced significant damage. Along County Road 3011, a mobile home was completely obliterated with the remains of the structure scattered for 150 yards. Two men were seriously injured at this location with each thrown 75 yards. The tornado continued to the northeast and crossed MS Highway 19 before lifting a bit further to the northeast. Numerous trees were snapped and uprooted along the path. Maximum winds were around 120 mph. As a side note, this tornado occurred within the damage path of the long track tornado from April 24, 2010.
