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
The risk of tornadoes and damaging winds are greatest with the threat Saturday. Though not nearly as high a risk as the storms that rolled through the south of Friday, where more than a dozen tornadoes touched down across 4 states. At least one person perished due to the storms Friday.
Watch as this tornado rolled rapidly across the skies of Arkansas on Friday April 13, nearby Mountainburg, AR. This is highly discouraged & not safe when a tornado is in the area. Always seek shelter when severe weather hits. #ARwx #SevereWeather #Tornado pic.twitter.com/fSwkKeDNum
