The devastating tornado that ripped through Mississippi on Saturday April 24, killing ten, was a violent EF-4 twister with 170 mph winds when it hit Yazoo City, according to a preliminary damage survey by the National Weather Service in Jackson, Mississippi. The tornado touched down near Tallulah, Louisiana, crossed the Mississippi River into Mississippi, and traversed nearly the entire state of Mississippi, carving a 149-mile long path of destruction. It is extremely rare for a tornado to stay on the ground this long. The world record longest path by a tornado is the 219-mile long path of the deadliest tornado in U.S. history, the violent F-5 Tri-State Tornado of 1925, which killed 695 people in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.

Saturday's tornado was strong almost from its initial stage of development in northeast Louisiana. EF-2 and EF-3 damage was common all along the tornado's path into central Mississippi with areas of EF-4 damage observed in both Yazoo and Holmes counties. After crossing Interstate 55, the tornado weakened with EF-1 and occasional EF-2 damage being common as the tornado moved across Attala County. The tornado re-intensified as it moved into Choctaw County, with at least high end EF-3 damage occurring northwest of the Weir community. The tornado remained strong before rapidly weakening and then dissipating just after moving into Oktibbeha County. It was the first violent EF-4 tornado of 2010. Over the past decade, the U.S. has averaged five violent EF-4 or EF-5 tornadoes per year. Our severe weather expert, Dr. Rob Carver, has a more detailed analysis of Saturday's tornado.

Tornadovideos.net intercepted the tornado near Holly Bluff just east of the Mississippi River, and tracked the huge wedge to the damage path in Yazoo City, after which they assisted with the rescue effort until emergency personnel gained control of the situation.

Portlight assesses needs after the Mississippi tornado
Portlight.org volunteer Riki Chomsky (AKA "kitchengypsy") paid a visit to tornado-ravaged Yazoo City, Mississippi on Sunday to assess whether or not Portlight should mount a response effort. Her report:

At this time, Portlight has decided not to deploy an emergency feeding unit to Yazoo City. We base this decision on 3 factors:

1) Scope. Although the scenes of devastation are terrible, by our estimate, more than half the city is relatively unharmed. With several restaurants, gas stations and other services open for business in such close proximity to the command center, we have faith that continuity of operations will soon be established for the whole city.

2) Current efforts: All current relief teams, with special emphasis on the Red Cross and Salvation Army, are doing an excellent job of handling the situation. They have taken pains to ensure food distribution across the affected areas, and we have confidence that they are truly the best organizations for this type of situation.

3) Anticipated Need / Speed of Recovery: although the extent of the damage will most likely require outside work crews, we saw very encouraging signs of progress. Work crews were active at almost every damaged site, which is highly impressive for less than 24 hours after the storm. Even when volunteer crews are brought in, we anticipate their needs being more than adequately met by the existing local churches, who have already started feeding work crews and rescue personnel. In addition to the Red Cross and Salvation Army, Portlight extends our appreciation to all members of this exemplary community response. While the damage is significant, the Salvation Army and local Red Cross seem to be doing a great job meeting the needs there, and Portlight recommends supporting one of these organizations.

Portlight continues aid efforts in Haiti
Portlight continues to focus its energy and funds on the situation in Haiti, where the rainy season is fast approaching the needs for shelter, medical supplies, food and water remain urgent. Their latest effort is a shipment of 10 pallets of Durable Medical Equipment, 30 pallets of water, 7,000 pounds of rice, a number of tents, tarps and various building supplies totaling some 14,000 pounds of goods. The supplies were loaded onto the schooner Halie and Mathew. The schooner was slowed by bad weather on its way to Haiti, and was forced to dock in Jamaica to make repairs. The ship is expected to land in Haiti later this week to deliver its supplies. Please visit the Portlight.org web site or the Portlight blog to learn more and to donate to this worthy cause.

If anyone post's Johnny Cash's "A Ring of Fire" I am out of here. What will they think of next. This will be one of the few times boaters can hang their hot-dogs overboard and have a weenie-roast.


Didn't someone say the other day that there are over 300 oil rigs in the GOM? I know I can't be the only one to think of this, but I'm sure they checked to make sure none of those are leaking before they set fire to this oil slick. Right? :)

Read that link about the moon. Think someone should tell Dr. Masters. LOL. I saw that many times, but never really thought about it. Maybe they don't know the moon is round too!


...interesting

I am open to correction, but I believe it would be correct to say that the exact same amount of the moons surface is illuminated by the sun EVERY night. (except when there is an eclipse caused by the shadow of the earth)

Unprecedented levels of pollen have been measured across the Eastern United States this April. On April 7, the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic in Georgia saw a near-record-breaking concentration of 5,733 particles per cubic foot. And in mid-April, Kansas City, Mo., recorded a pollen level of over 8,000 particles per cubic foot, the highest ever seen at that station.

Well, we're mot that high :o). One of the lowest readings in awhile.

Sorry to be late answering your question, it is the general consensus that almost all of the oil spill is 100% above the water. Hard to believe, but true.

Oil spill not affecting Mississippi River traffic
POSTED: 11:24 AM Wednesday, April 28, 2010
BY: Ben Myers, Staff Writer
TAGS: Coast Guard, Southwest Pass

Southwest Pass, the primary shipping connection between the Gulf of Mexico and the Port of New Orleans, is not affected by an oil spill off the Louisiana coast, U.S. Coast Guard Cmdr. Chris Woodle said today.

But the Coast Guard and port officials continue to monitor the trajectory of the spill, which could change because of weather patterns, Woodle said.

As of this morning, the westernmost reach of the spill zone was 35 miles from the pass, Woodle said.

Although the pass itself is not currently expected to close, shippers will need to alter routes in arriving there, Woodle said. The Coast Guard is working to gather information about impacts to routes and will distribute it directly to shippers as soon as it is available.

“The size of the cleanup operation out there is getting bigger by the day, we need to get that information to the shippers and agents so they can make property routing decisions,” Woodle said.•

here we go



A strong frontal system is expected to move into the area by this weekend, resulting in an increased threat for showers and thunderstorms by that time. At this point, the weather pattern looks favorable for severe storms on Saturday, and heavy rain on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will remain quite mild for this time year, with highs in the lower 70s to lower 80s. Lows temperatures over the weekend will be in the upper 50s to middle 60s.
