It looks like this outbreak might be nearing an end, although please, no one assume with certainty.

The last few tornado warnings have been all radar indicated with no visual confirmation.  Also, they've been part of squall lines rather than super cells and tend to be weaker and dying off far more rapidly.  The danger now has moved from tornadoes to flooding.

There is a "slight" risk tomorrow according to the Storm Prediction Center, but hopefully it will be nothing but rain and some thunder at most.



I'm going to unpin this thread unless something drastic happens.

Some horrible stories from these tornadoes: the college swimmer who held up a wall long enough for his girlfriend to escape, but he couldn't save himself; a father and two of his daughters killed while the rest of the family survived, and more.  **nononono*
"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."

Sadly, it is the same stories we hear with each one of these outbreaks.  The names change, the events stay the same.

The Louisville, Mississippi tornado has been rated an EF-4.

http://www.srh.noaa.gov/jan/?n=2014_04_27_28_29_winston_tor

The Mayflower/Vilonia, Arkansas tornado has been rated as a high end EF-4. 180-190mph winds with a track of 41.3 miles and a maximum width of .75 miles.  Additional survey work could change this to EF-5 if evidence of even strong winds/damage is found.

I haven't seen a rating for the Tupelo tornado or others from the 28th.
