Tornadoes, Violent Storms And Hail Strike The South

 Monday, April 20, 2020


For the second Monday in a row, people across the South are waking up to storm damage caused by extreme winds, hail and tornadoes. Deadly tornadoes struck the same region on Easter.

The region experienced eerily similar conditions on Sunday. There were reports of at least seven tornadoes Sunday night into Monday morning.

In addition, there were more than 100 reports of damaging winds and more than 30 reports of hail from Kansas to Florida.

One of those strong and potentially large tornadoes tracked just south of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Sunday night. The Hattiesburg Police Department said on Twitter that trees were downed and vehicles flooded in the wake of the storm.

Over the course of Monday, the storms will continue east and move north to Virginia, and an area including the east coast of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina will be under the threat of severe thunderstorms.
