Major Tornadoes, Mississippi and Alabama; Jackson Area Hit

Very dangerous situation in Mississippi and Alabama…

The posting immediately below shows the above supercell thunderstorm (circled) that produced the damaging tornado when it was in the Clinton-SW Jackson, Mississippi area and doing damage.  The tornado then moved over Barnett Res. and has continued to move ENE to its current position (supercell thunderstorm circled). The approximate location of the tornado is at the tip of the arrow.

The two large thunderstorms in southwest Alabama (lower right) have also produced tornadoes and an oil refinery has been hit by one of the Alabama tornadoes with damage reported.

Tornado watches are in effect for the outlined areas below. Please be prepared to take cover if warnings are issued for your area!
