The first full week of April brought another round of strong and severe storms to the South central and southeastern United States. Things started early Tuesday morning in Louisana and Mississippi with a powerful storm ripping through Newton, MS. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511448592699080715 Our field correspondents captured the aftermath of that tornado, with damage on the ground in Newton, MS where a large tree fell onto a home. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511373104693579779 In all, four tornadoes were confirmed in Mississippi on Tuesday with more storm surveys underway across the south. In Grady, AL we saw tornadic damage, and students at Auburn University in Alabama had to shelter due to a tornado in that area. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511629794118553605 One of our most powerful storms crossed from Georgia into South Carolina mid-afternoon on Tuesday. The same counties were under three separate tornado warnings from cells that kept "training" over the same areas, bringing storms and severe weather. The correlation coefficient (below) indicates debris in a storm. The deep blue dot is a clear debris ball signature. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511467246199189511 Unfortunately storms turned deadly in Georgia. A tornado ripped through the town of Ellabell, GA outside of Georgia. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511705294560190466 This family was locked outside of their home when the tornado came through, completely ripping the roof off. If you find yourself away from a structure, try to get as low to the ground as possible. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1511494956350853126 In addition to the multiple tornadoes and tornado warnings, hail was also reported across the southeast along with heavy rain leading to the flood concerns. We are in the height of spring time storms, stay with WeatherNation as we bring you the latest forecast and recap information.
