Severe Weather Shifts Further East – More on Tap for Today
A tornado touched down near Tulsa, Oklahoma just after 7pm local time causing damages, knocking out power, and injuring residents of the Tulsa metro area. The National Weather Service will survey the damage and rate the tornado Thursday.
Parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley received between 2” to 4” of rain Wednesday. The heavy rain caused flood problems across the region as the already water-logged ground was unable to absorb any more moisture.
The flood risk remains high on Thursday as the system fueled by gulf moisture continues to press east. Flood Watches and Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings remain in place Thursday morning from the Lower Mississippi Valley to Central Georgia.
The threat for severe weather remains high on Thursday. An enhanced risk stretching
from Northeastern Louisiana through the Tennessee Valley. And a slight risk stretching from Lake Michigan to the Gulf Coast.
