 Brief Description: This tornado was the 3rd tornado to occur from supercell 3. The tornado touched down about 5 miles southeast of Fayette and tracked east for 7 miles across southern Jefferson County. Much of the damage along the path was to trees, where thousands were snapped and uprooted. The most intense damage was in a small area about 6 miles west-southwest of Union Church along Perth Road where nearly every tree, many of them large, in a heavily forested area were snapped or uprooted. The damage here was rated at the low end of F2 with the rest of the path consisting of F1 damage. Luckily no homes were in the path of the tornado, but two sheds were destroyed and a gazebo was heavily damaged.

 Brief Description: This tornado started 4 miles SE of Caseyville and continued to the NE for 10 miles when it entered Copiah county at 7:46 pm, at the intersection of Interstate 55 and the county line. This tornado caused minor damage to numerous homes with several homes sustaining major damage in the form of having their roofs blown off. This tornado also took down two 500 kilowatt towers. In addition to the structural damage, hundereds of trees were snapped and uprooted. To put the entire event into perspective, areas just to the N of Interstate 20 and extending W to E across the entire state, experienced a 125 year rainfall event. Rainfall totals ranged from 7 to 12 inches which all fell in about 18 hours. Due to the large amounts of rain, river flooding quickly became a major problem. The Pelahatchie Creek experienced a 100 year flood. The Chunky River, at Chunky, set a new record. This river actually flooded a portion of Interstate 20 which had to be closed for a few hours. The Chickasawhay River at Enterprise also set a record. In addition to all the flash flooding, the river flooding caused major damage to homes and flooded numerous roads.

 Brief Description: This tornado touched down just west of the Natchez Trace, 8 miles west of Fayette and tracked northeast for 18 miles across Jefferson county. Between the Natchez Trace and highway 553 the tornado was in its early stages and produced F0 damage by downing several trees. Between highway 553 and US Highway 61 this tornado began to intensify and downed or snapped hundreds of trees. One mobile home and two sheds sustained minor damage as they were located on the northern edge of the circulation. As it approached US Highway 61, it moved through an open field and was at its widest point, 600 yards. Here a string of seven power poles were snapped and a large tractor shed was destroyed. The frame of the shed was made of large I-beams. These beams were snapped from their base as the shed was blown away. In the area around US Highway 61 four homes sustained major roof damage. On the east side of the highway one of these homes lost almost the entire roof and had every window blown out. For a three mile stretch between US Highway 61 and highway 552 the tornado was at its strongest and produced F3 damage. Every tree in the forest, along this stretch, was uprooted or snapped. The tornado began to weaken after passing across highway 552 and dissipated just on the other side of the Claiborne county line.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: This strong tornado touched down just east of the Brookhaven-Lincoln County Airport and tracked east-northeast for five miles to near the Woolworth Community. The most significant damage occurred just south of Heucks Crossing along Beeson Road where two mobile homes were obliterated. The debris was swept from foundations with large debris, including furniture, and appliances thrown more than 100 yards. Additionally, numerous trees, both pines and hardwoods, were snapped and uprooted along with several power lines down along the path. A shop was also destroyed, camper trailer heavily damaged and two other homes suffered significant roof damage. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A small, but potent, storm system evolved and moved east across the region during the first half of the day. A large MCV (meso-scale convective vortex) developed across Central Louisiana during the morning hours and moved east adding an extra kick to the atmosphere and aided in generating a line of severe thunderstorms which produced five tornadoes and wind damage. All the severe weather was confined to the southern areas, generally along Highway 84, and extended from Natchez to Brookhaven to Laurel.

 Brief Description: This tornado first touched down in Clayton and tracked to the northeast for 14 miles to 6 miles north of Waterproof. The tornado was on the ground for 3 miles in Concordia parish before it moved into Tensas parish. The damage in Clayton and just to the northeast was confined to a few trees uprooted and snapped with one tree landing on a mobile home causing 1 injury. The tornado became more intense as it moved across southern Tensas parish. The tornado tracked nearly 6 miles across swamp land before it slammed into a small church on Highway 566. The church was totally destroyed as it was blown off its pillars and deposited in a tree and across the Highway. After traveling across more fields for 2 miles the tornado hit the "Thunderbird House". Here the tornado was at its peak intensity and caused the most significant damage. All the trees on the property were uprooted and mangled, a john boat was wrapped in a tree like tin foil and the large barn in the back yard was totally destroyed. The large house had its second story torn off and deposited 1/4 to 1/2 a mile down the path. This house was around 100 years old, between 5000-6000 sq ft and firmly built. The tornado picked the house up and moved it 4 feet and tore off 2 of the side walls. Additionally, both vehicles in the driveway were moved some 10-15 feet and heavily damaged by debris. The tornado continued to the northeast were it destroyed another home blowing off the roof and all the exterior walls. At this location, a car was picked up and flipped over onto a pile of downed trees. A house on the edge of the path had widows blown out and part of the roof blown off. This tornado had a total path length of 14 miles across Concordia and Tensas parishes. Overall the tornado was not very wide but it was very intense. Fortunately, the tornado moved across a sparsely populated and rural area keeping significant damage to a minimum.
