Check out the latest update from the NWS in Jackson Mississippi on Saturday’s devestating EF4 long track tornado.
You can see the radar images where debris from the ground was actually picked up by doppler radar. Look at the image on the left just south of Yazoo City.
Brandon, MS doppler radar shows the tornadic thunderstorm at 12:14 pm on April 24th. At this time, the storm was moving across Yazoo City. A “debris ball”, or an area of higher reflectivity resulting from significant tornado debris being lifted into the atmosphere, is evident on the 0.5° base reflectivity image on the left.
Note the updated path length of 149 miles!
