 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This tornado started in a rural area and downed trees and limbs along its path until causing its most intense damage at it crossed County Road 250. Here, it moved a large two story frame house several feet off its foundation, along with blowing out numerous windows and causing roof damage. Additionally, many dozens of large trees were snapped and uprooted in the vicinity. The tornado continued to move north northeast, causing extensive tree damage with hundreds of trees snapped or uprooted. Very near the end point, just east southeast of the DeSoto Community, roof damage occurred to two homes. Maximum wind speed was 115 mph. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong upper level system and evolving surface low moved across the region late on March 3rd. These features combined to bring a potent weather system to the area and a healthy round of severe thunderstorms from late afternoon through around midnight. It was a line of thunderstorms which brought most of the severe weather, but a few supercells did occur just ahead of the line. Ten tornadoes occurred, two of which were strong (EF-2), along with a good deal of wind damage as the line pushed east across Mississippi.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This strong tornado touched down in the Blackwater Community and caused extensive damage along its 2 mile path. Six homes were destroyed, five of which were mobile homes and one modular home. Nine people were injured with three serious. One car was flipped over and rolled along with extensive damage to trees and power lines along the path of this high end F2 tornado. EPISODE NARRATIVE: During the evening of Jan 4th and early morning hours of Jan 5th, a potent storm system moved across the Lower Mississippi Valley. This system was dynamic enough to generate a line of thunderstorms across Central Mississippi. This line developed within a strongly sheared environment and evolved into a squall line with bowing segments. These bowing segments proved very efficient with respect to producing damaging wind gusts and six tornadoes. The squall line matured just east of Interstate 55 around 11 pm and raced east before exiting into Alabama around 3 am.

 Brief Description: This strong tornado touched down briefly on the northeast side of Newton causing significant damage to the Lazy Boy factory building. A large part of the factory roof was torn off and large pieces of metal were thrown 1/3 of a mile to the north-northwest. The iron girders within the building were bent at about 10 degrees with some failure of the roof near the center. Insulation debris was scattered all about with some pieces found 4.5 miles away along the northeast shores of Turkey Creek Lake. In fact, a 4 foot piece of metal roofing was found at the base of the dam, 4 miles north-northwest of the Lazy Boy plant. Additionally, a 1/2 ton pickup, parked next to the building, was lifted and slammed against an iron ladder. A T-post that was laying on the ground was picked up and hurled as a missile about 100 feet. It was then impaled into a utility pole and bent at a 90 degree angle. The tops of trees about 300 feet away were sheared off half way up.
