Tornado, Hail, Flood as Severe Weather Continues to Impact Southern, Central US

 In Event News

The severe weather impacting the southern and central US on April 29-30 continues today, as heavy rain led to flash flooding from the Ozarks into the mid-Mississippi Valley. Major river flooding is expected to last into much of this week in some areas.

Torrential rainfall Friday through Sunday triggered destructive flooding from the Ozarks into the mid-Mississippi Valley, with some river crests smashing records that had stood for over 100 years. River flooding will only worsen in some areas through the rest of this week.

The weekend was very active with extreme weather, as hail swaths swept across the central and southern US, while tornados were reported in Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas:
