Hard to tell if that's a monster TDS coming up on Dumas, AR or not. Once more it seems to be a little displaced from the strongest part of the couplet. Then again I haven't seen any really obvious (Say, Greensboro/Brent on Thursday) signatures today; as the storms apart from Shreveport again seem to be peaking far from the radars.

Short Cordova to Jasper chase, a mostly dying supercell that was still spinning but winding down as the sun set over Walker county. It originated over in central Mississippi, passing just south of GWX with a very well defined hook, though the fairly straight hodographs this afternoon and relatively weak 0-1km srh limited very low level rotation and it never went tornado warned. Rotation was picking up again as we headed out to it, near Berry with a clear meso, but soon after that the severe warning was allowed to expire as it started weakening. Walker was only ever under a significant wx advisory.

We sped south to Cordova to get ahead of it because it was significantly right-moving ENE while it was over Fayette county and that would've taken it across the interstate just north of the Cordova exit on I-22; however as the sun set it weakened significantly and the deviant right motion stopped, shunting it NE to right over Jasper. That said, the overpass in Cordova was a great spot regardless because it has a very good view of the sky to the NW.

Velocity actually picked up a little in the dying storm for a couple frames as it passed right over downtown Jasper, and I thought I could see a well defined ragged lowering crossing the interstate (we parked off Industrial Blvd after getting off the interstate) but it's quite foggy out so I assume with lowering LCLs it was likely scud as the storm continued to weaken

Got a vauge view of the storm vertically as it headed off NE reflected off the city lights; still a fairly robust structure but was completely falling apart on radar by this time

I live in Dunlap, in a manufactured home. Should I be worried?

Not from that storm, it's moving northeast.
Keep an eye out for others that may pop up though, and have a way to get alerts overnight of course.

Have to think things are going to go bonkers in N. MS over the next few hours. Or the other b-word. Hoping for the latter but I don't see a whole lot of in-between.
