Episode Narrative A powerful storm system moved out of the plains on Christmas, producing numerous strong storms across southeast Mississippi, southwest Alabama, and the western Florida panhandle out ahead of a strong cold front and accompanying squall line. Multiple tornadoes, some long track, were observed along the central gulf coast region. A total of eight tornadoes were observed across the NWS Mobile county warning area.
Event Narrative The tornado moved from northeast Pearl River county into extreme northwest Stone county causing significant damage to a few homes on Magnolia Road. It crossed Highway 26...snapping numerous pine trees in the lake Tac-O-Leen campground. The tornado continued northeast destroying a manufactured home on Will Lee road and heavily damaging several frame houses. A manufactured home was also rolled into a frame house. Emergency Management also reported trees down on Progress Road before the tornado exited Stone County into Forrest County. This tornado segment in Stone County is part of a 61 mile long track tornado that went from central Pearl River County to western Greene County Mississippi.
