Tornado Season Starting With A Bang

After quite a few days of Moderate Risk tornado issues for the central plains and surrounding areas, today saw the  National Weather Service in the United States issue the highest possible risk level. And with reason, the conditions were perfect for tornado development. Some chasers were out today chasing these storms, despite the activity being located to the east of the usual chasing areas.

Yazoo City seems to have gotten the brunt of today’s activity with official reports of significant damage in Yazoo City, after a long tracking wedge tornado passed through the city. This tornado is believed to possibly be around an EF-4 in strength, though at the time of writing this there weren’t too many details available just yet.

But it has been confirmed that there was a large damaging wedge tornado in Yazoo City, as can be seen by the official warning below.

At 1230 PM CDT NWS WAS TRACKING A LARGE AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS WEDGE TORNADO. SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE HAS OCCURRED IN YAZOO CITY ALL ALONG THIS LONG TRACK TORNDADO! THIS TORNADO WAS LOCATED NEAR MIDWAY MOVING NORTHEAST AT 50 MPH.
