 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This storm developed in a wooded area along and east of Olive Grove Road in Jackson Parish where several small pine trees were snapped. Further east along Hwy 144 north of Eros, numerous large trees were snapped and a nearby home sustained roof damage. A barn in a field nearby also sustained significant roof damage. The tornado tracked east into Ouachita Parish, snapping and uprooting trees as well as causing minor roof damage to nearby homes along Guyton Loop Road. The tornado crossed Hwy 34, and moved onto Old Jonesboro Road where numerous trees were snapped and uprooted. One tree was physically moved 30 feet with the root ball intact, leaving a large hole in its original location. One mobile home was moved off of its foundation and several sheds and outbuildings were completely destroyed. Roof damage occurred to several homes along the street as well. The worst damage occurred to a home along Antioch Church Road, where the entire roof was peeled off and destroyed, leaving only the walls. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A strong upper level storm system along with a surface dry line/front over northeast Texas moved east during the evening hours of April 9th into the early morning hours of April 10th causing long lived supercell thunderstorms. These thunderstorms caused long track tornadoes to occur across southeast Oklahoma, southwest Arkansas, northeast Texas, and north Louisiana.

 Brief Description: A strong tornado developed under a supercell moving northeast across the parish. As the tornado developed in Union Parish, Louisiana, eyewitness reports described the tornado as resembling a stove pipe with screaming winds sounding like a banshee. Where the tornado originally touched down, a bowl like appearance was carved into the woods when viewing the initial impact point horizontally. The tornado then continued northeast across a combination of farmland and wooded region destroying 2 mobile homes and severely damaging 6 wooden houses. As the tornado moved into Union County, Arkansas, the tornado moved across only heavily wooded area void of structures.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: Numerous homes were damaged in the town of Dodson with several completely destroyed. One mobile home was picked up and moved 30 feet west of its original location where it was destroyed with parts of the frame wrapped around a neighboring home. The two injuries occurred in the destroyed home. Approximately 27 mobile homes and 11 built in place structures in the center of Dodson sustained severe damage from snapped or falling trees and/or wind damage. A mobile home in the center of Dodson was rolled off its foundation and destroyed. The tornado touched down on the southwest side of town along US 167 and moved northward 1.5 miles before lifting along State Route 1235. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A very unstable airmass developed across the four state region during the afternoon hours of May 2nd. A weak cold front had moved southward during the morning hours into southeast Oklahoma and southwest Arkansas and had stalled. A weak shortwave moved into the Texas Hill County and produced enough lift...along with the development of a strong low level jet...for strong to severe thunderstorms to erupt across the region. The storms initially developed as supercells...producing large hail and isolated tornadoes but then evolved into a squall line. Strong straight line winds accompanied the squall line with winds in excess of 100 mph reported with some storms. There were also isolated tornadoes reported within the squall line itself. Damage was extensive across the region but overnight...the repeated training of storms resulted in a widespread flash flooding event. Numerous counties and parishes were flooded with rainfall amounts in excess of 6 inches in a 12 hour period common. By the time the event ended...there were five different line echo wave patterns that developed across the four state region the afternoon of May 2nd through the morning hours of May 3rd.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: The tornado tracked across rural southern Ashley County and snapped and uprooted hundreds of large hardwood and softwood trees. Forty two homes were damaged with approximately 15 homes that were heavily damaged or destroyed. The most intense damage was along Meridian Church Road in southwest Ashley County. Here, intense tree damage resulted in several cross roads being blocked by dozens of trees, and several mobile homes and houses were destroyed by the winds and fallen trees. This was the area rated EF2 with 130 mph winds. Over the last several miles of the track, the tornado was narrower and damage was primarily in the EF1 category. EPISODE NARRATIVE: During the afternoon and evening of April 9th and overnight hours of the 10th, an outbreak of severe storms and tornadoes occurred across the ArkLaMiss region and pushed east through northern Louisiana and into northern Mississippi. While the majority of the severe weather occurred out of the NWS Jackson, MS service area, several reports of large hail and wind damage were reported along with a few tornadoes. One of the strongest storms moved east across Ashley County Arkansas. This storm produced an EF2 tornado over the southwest and southern sections, and contained a swath of quarter to golf ball sized hail which occurred across the entire length of the county. In looking at this event, which occurred over two days (April 9-10), in a regional view, this was likely the biggest severe weather and tornado outbreak during the spring of 2009. This event contained numerous strong tornadoes along with hundreds of large hail reports which stretched from the Southern Plains to several other southern States.
