On this Day in Weather History...
In 1987, the same powerful storm that ravaged much of the Northern and Southern Plains on the 27th unleashed its fury across the Deep South. During the mid morning, a monstrous F4 tornado with a track 40 miles long and up to 2 miles wide roared through Southeast Mississippi. It killed 6, injured 350, and caused $28.5 million damage. Had the tornado struck on a weekday, it is likely the death and injury totals would have been much higher as an elementary school in the town of Glade was nearly destroyed.
