Tornadoes are firing up all along the west side of that 'High Risk' area - which was added to the forecast about an hour ago. I am counting 6 active Tornado Warned areas right now.

On my radar you can see the hook which usually means tornado - hope you are safe!

Weatherman did his job well. Kept his cool. Pictures coming in now from WREG and Channel 5 Memphis are devastating. There was a green hue to the South of us and constant thunder. I’ve seen it many times having been reared in Wichita County, Texas. Kay Shannon of Wichita Falls did the same keeping her cool during the Wichita Falls tornado of April 10, 1979.

This is so scary for me.

I have grandchildren in Jackson, TN and Tulsa, OK.

I hate tornado season.

Poor Mississippi - they just can’t catch a break. Parts are still trying to recover from the last hurricane. Prayers up for these folks.

Last year they had tornado damage, too - Hattiesburg, IIRC.

James Spann. their chief met, is one of the best on severe weather. When Albritton bought ABC 33/40, he was one of the first people they hired; been in the market for decades, knows the area like the back of his hand and viewers turn to him when the weather gets ugly.

He’s also a very vocal critic of man-made global warming.

We went to Pass Christian for a few days in the summer of 2012. Just broke my heart to see how much of their history had been destroyed.

Called and found out all of our sales force is safe in Tupelo. Numerous customers took bad hits though.

Thanks - so far so good... the storm I’m watching is currently near Hamilton, AL. A bit further away as a ‘split’ in the lines is developing. Kids’ schools were missed by a tornado maybe 3-4 miles a few minutes ago. Guessing F3 based on radar returns.

Not a good day when Reed Timmer is in my state... also saw live video from another storm chaser literally at my I-65 exit.

Yikes. This is frightening. My first experience with Southern tornadoes was in Tupelo. It went on and on. So sorry to see it hitting there again.

Rotation fell apart on approach. Out of danger now, but also lost power. Lots of damage elsewhere in my county plus 3 reported fatalities.
