Episode Narrative A slow moving storm system combined with abundant moisture to bring nearly 48 hours of rain and thunderstorms to the ArkLaMiss region, beginning on the evening of March 20th and continuing through the afternoon hours of March 22nd. Strong winds in the atmosphere interacted with a cold front to bring severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and widespread flooding to the region. The primary impacts from this system were tornadoes and flooding, but there were also many reports of damaging winds. With rich moisture flowing north from the Gulf of Mexico, many of the storms were efficient rain makers that ended up producing both flash flooding and river flooding. Most areas west of the I-55 corridor received one to three inches, areas along the I-55 corridor received between three and four inches, and up to eight inches was observed east of I-55.
Event Narrative Trees were blown down along Highway 913 northwest of Sicily Island.
