EF4 Tornado In Mississippi Obliterated Property On Its Nearly Sixty-Mile Track

Monday, March 27th, 2023 Auto Property

An EF4 tornado tore through the western Mississippi town of Rolling Fork on Friday night, causing total destruction as it ripped through the small, tight-knit community. The outbreak of storms left at least 26 dead across the Southeast, and communities face a lengthy road to recovery.

The images from the ground and drone footage taken in the tornado’s aftermath have revealed startling damage as the twister laid waste to homes and businesses.

Neighborhoods were flattened. A truck was tossed on top of a building like a toy. Large pieces of wood impaled a vehicle. But also pictured were resilient communities coming together and beginning to pick up the pieces.

Dramatic satellite imagery released on Sunday by Maxar shows a different perspective of the tornado’s wrath. From a bird’s-eye view, the extensive damage to buildings in Rolling Fork is hard to miss, and the EF4’s nearly 60-mile path of obliteration can be seen clearly.

The jaw-dropping photos illustrate the twister’s violent path. Beginning in northern Issaquena County and ending to the northeast in northern Holmes County, the path was approximately 59 miles long, according to the preliminary storm survey from the National Weather Service (NWS).
