Tornado hits Yazoo City again



(Associated Press) The National Weather Service says a strong weather system tore down power lines, uprooted a few trees and damaged property in parts of Yazoo City, but there were no immediate reports of injuries.

Severe weather swept through the area Monday evening. Meteorologist Daniel Lamb says there were reports of similar damage near Vicksburg and Valley Park.

Lamb says it couldn’t immediately be confirmed whether the damage was the result of a tornado, but it’s what’s expected based on what is being seen on radar.

Mike Womack, the head of the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, earlier urged residents to prepare for the threat of severe weather.


10:37pm – Attala County, Mississippi (W

LBT) Mobile homes blown off blocks with reported numerous injuries along Sudduth Road/Co Rd. 4045 and Co Rd. 4171. Injuries also reported in rural areas southwest of Kosciusko, Mississippi.

10:34pm – According to WLBT-TV’s Facebook page: “buildings are still standing but windows blown out, roof damage, etc.” I’d call that good news.

10:15pm – You may remember back in April Yazoo City, Mississippi was struck by a very strong tornado. It was a long-track EF-4 that claimed the lives of ten people.

While the city is not back to 100% from that tornado, another one tore through the town of 15,000. According to WTOK-TV, damage was caused to structures, power lines, and trees. WLBT-TV in Jackson is reporting damage in Yazoo City because of a tornado. According to a local nurse there have been no reports of injuries at this time.

    The Nets appeared to be poised to pick up where they left off in the ABA.
    However, they got a rude surprise when the NBA forced the Nets to pay an additional $4.8 million directly to the Knicks for “invading” the New York area. Coming on the heels of the $3.2 million that the team had to pay for joining the NBA, this left Boe short of cash, and he was forced to renege on a promised pay raise for Erving.
