4/12/20: Moderate Risk Follow Up

It is time to follow up on the SPC Moderate Risk that occurred on 4/12/20.  According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), there were 54 tornado reports and the data is still being processed.  Unfortunately, there were at least five reported fatalities and nine injuries, according to current data at the SPC, but there have been more listed on local news outlets.

The SPC Storms Reports graphic is shown below:

Most of these tornadoes occurred as embedded in squall lines, and while I predicted near where some of these tornadoes formed, they would have been hidden by terrain and rain-wrapped.

One of the big ones struck Soso, MS, and I’m waiting to see how that one is rated.  It was gigantic and did a lot of damage, annihilating the town.

It was a rough day in the south.

Thank you for reading my post.
