Severe Storms Continue Through the Weekend Apr 14, 2018

The threat of severe storms and tornadoes will continue Saturday as a massive storm system treks east.  After all the severe storms that moved through parts of Texas and Arkansas Friday, the threat shifts toward the deep south from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama especially, but storms could be severe as far north as Tennesee.

The risk of tornadoes and damaging winds are greatest with the threat Saturday
