In this region, you will remember the EF-2 that killed 3 people as it was caught live on WREG-TV's cam in east Memphis as it moved through Southaven and into Hickory Hill. And who can forget the EF-4 that decimated the dorms at Union University, yet amazingly spared every life.
This outbreak serves as a reminder that severe weather can happen at any time and does not have to occur in the "traditional" severe weather seasons of spring and late fall. I encourage you to check out the references below for more on this storm system.
