Episode Narrative A potent storm system dropped out of the Southern Plains on February 12th and pushed a squall line of thunderstorms through the region. This squall line produced widespread wind damage across portions of northeast Louisiana as well as central and southern Mississippi. The line of storms was very efficient in terms of producing severe wind gusts, many of which were between 75 and 90 mph. Thousands of trees were damaged with many falling on homes and taking down power lines. Five brief tornadoes also occurred with this line of storms.
Event Narrative Numerous trees and power lines were blown down around Larto and the Pharms Communities. Minor damage also occurred to a couple homes where some tin was torn off a few roofs.
