A significant tornado outbreak occurred in the Mississippi Delta 41 years ago today. There were nine tornadoes in the MS Delta, including a F-5, two F-4's, and one F-3. Unfortunately, 110 people died in MS alone. 123 people total during the outbreak (11 Louisiana, 2 in North Carolina). From a chasing standpoint, the Delta is very similar to the Great Plains. It's actually probably my favorite place to chase. If I was alive, I would have gone after this event for sure. I'll leave several links below about this historic tornado outbreak... Enjoy!
