Unknown. It means they didn't have enough damage indicators to give it a definitive rating.

ETA: It is pretty much only used for low-end tornadoes. They can also use it if the damage is in hard ro reach terrain.

One touched down briefly in NE Jackson (were the WIPPO live)
A short street, maybe 1/4 mile, has at least 20 trees down with almost every roof damaged. I’m maybe 1/2 mile away, and we were without power from Tues pm till early Saturday morning.

A tornado’s effects in the Kiln is technically considered an improvement.

The proper way to say it.

I know it sounds crazy, but some people have said that the Mississippi River in BR creates some type of barrier that diminishes storms once crossing the river. Living in Washington Parish it seems like the Kentwood area of Tangipahoa Parish gets the worse of storms before moving into Washington Parish and Southern Mississippi. I realize no data probably backs it up, but it sure seems like it.

Here's a plot of every recorded tornado in the area since 1890ish (this year excluded).


The warmer the color, the stronger the tornado.

Draw your own conclusions.

A little wider view:

I remember being at the camp once in Slidell as a kid when 7 tornadoes went through the surrounding areas one night. Early 80’s I believe. Crazy night!

People said the same thing in Nola until a tornado left Terrytown, crossed the river, barely missed a cruise ship, and hit arabi.

No tornados, but my town (Madison, MS) has a heck of a lot of trees down.

Always thought that was beyond a 5 in a joking manner.

Looks like the Atchafalaya is the real deterrent, unless there is just a lack of data there throughout history.

Anyway you can post that, but with the Mobile area included? I'd love to see what type of tornadoes my area has had over the years.

I think this loaded all of them. The site can be a little glitchy at times, so it is hard to know for sure.



You can go there and zoom in more and click on each tornado if you want.
