Four people died in Hattiesburg because of a 4am tornado. The same type of situation could develop this evening and overnight.
The hatched area is where violent tornadoes could occur.
There is also the risk of giant hail, similar to the risk this morning. The hatched area may have hail >2" in diameter.
Make sure you have at least two ways of getting a warning.
- NOAA WeatherRadio
- Sign up for the excellent WeatherCall.
- The AccuWeather app will let you know if a watch or warning is issued.
You have time to do all of these. Also, put your car, lawn furniture and anything that can blow about inside.
I will update at least twice before I retire tonight.
