Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracked from Northern Arkansas into Southern Missouri during the evening hours of February 5th, 2008. Supercells developed out ahead of the system during the late afternoon into the early evening. The storms produced tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds. As the supercells moved east during the evening, a cold front moved into North Mississippi. A squall line developed along the front and produced another round of large hail and damaging winds. The front continued to push east into the overnight hours.
Event Narrative Straight line winds knocked down numerous power poles and trees in the Tunica area. A tree was knocked onto a house causing moderate damage. Twenty to thirty residential homes had shingle damage and three apartment complexes had roof damage. The antenna was blown off the roof of the Tunica EMA building and an 86 mph gust was reported at the Tunica Airport. Structural damage to a few businesses occurred near the Resort District.
