After a weekend of severe storms ravaged the south and southeast, the tail end of that system stalled, perpetuating dangerous conditions. Although the severe threat was marginal, a few isolated incidents caused big impacts. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/1544559939043611/?v=1544559939043611 The school day at Loris High School in South Carolina was interrupted by a brief tornado Monday. NWS storm survey teams confirmed EF-1 damage, with estimated wind speeds of 90 mph. The tornado developed near the football field, traversed through the bleachers, and tossed several cars in the parking lot. A mobile trailer was flipped, pine trees snapped and the metal roof of a large storage barn was ripped off. The estimated path width was 45 yards. The tornado was on the ground for 1.23 miles for about 5 minutes. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/1907174696092639/?v=1907174696092639 A microburst is to blame for this viral video in North Carolina. A waterlogged roof gave way to powerful thunderstorm winds. Three students from Union Intermediate School in the Sampson County School District were treated for minor injuries. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1217295341902618625 Heavy rains produced by these storms sparked a flash flood emergency in Mississippi, as well. The concern was even more heightened with the potential of the Oktibbeha County Lake Dam failing. The dam is continuously being monitored for potential breaking as the pressure continues to build. Evacuations are still recommended but not currently mandatory. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1217080021027700737
