Warning of storms, flooding in northeast Mississippi
UPDATE: Thursday, March 2, 12:20 a.m.
NWS says northeast Mississippi has had 1.3 inches of rain since sundown at 5:52 p.m. NWS forecasts an additional 1.6 inches of rain between now and midnight Thursday. Rain is expected to continue Friday. Thus far we have had no reports of property damage or injuries to people. The flood watch and tornado watch remain in effect. The possibility of flooding, especially on rural roads in northeast Mississippi counties, increases as more rain falls.
Although the forecast is still sketchy, the National Weather Service has issued both tornado and flood warning for northeast Mississippi.
The warnings extended over two to three days and remain in effect until sometime Friday.
Although the current radar returns at 6:10 pm do not show any blossoming storms in our immediate area, things could change very quickly.
The NWS alerted its weather spotters about 5 p.m. to be watching for severe weather.
Readers should be alert to updates here and in other northeast Mississippi media in the coming hours.
