Mississippi Tornado Upgraded to EF 5. Takes Road With It.

Posted by Dan Satterfield


This what an EF 5 tornado with 205 mph winds can do. This is where the tornado crossed the road in Noxubee County, MS.


The supercell responsible for this, killed three people and was the first EF 5 in Mississippi since 1966.

It also plowed a field.

The fatalities happened when a strapped down double wide mobile home was thrown 300 yards in the air and into a line of trees, and obliterated. You can read the storm survey from the NWS here.
