Episode Narrative A vigorous upper level trough and cold front swept through the mid and deep South during the evening hours of the 22nd and early morning hours of the 23rd. Multiple bands of thunderstorms, some including embedded supercells, tracked rapidly northeast at 50 to 60 mph. Despite the storm's speed, some areas experienced multiple bouts of thunderstorms and heavy downpours. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches were quite common, with some locations exceeding 3 or 4 inches in Madison and Jackson Counties. Already saturated soils could not hold any further rainfall, thus runoff and flash flooding became a problem quickly after the storms began as ditches overflowed and creeks went out of their banks. Numerous roads became impassible and were closed.
Event Narrative Flash flooding closed the intersection of Fishtrap and Butler Mill Roads. Other roads between Grant and Woodville were closed.
