WLBT is saying that schools are doing a late dismissal and all buses are reporting to the nearest school to unload. Really seems like they could have dismissed hours ago instead of having kids out on the roads right now. Big oversight on their part.
Yes I got up close and personal with a flood situation in that vicinity one day. I was the last car out before the flood took over and flooded out the cars in that area behind the bowling alley. Very uncomfortable situation!
Odd situation where parts of Jasper, Newton, Scott and Smith Counties, MS are under two severe thunderstorm warnings at once, one from the line and one from discrete cells ahead of it. Could get confusing if, for example, you hear that one warning for your county is cancelled/expired, but the other remains in effect.
I have heard from all my family in the Jackson area, all are ok. The storm passed a couple of miles from my sister in law's and my parent's houses, but other than no power they're ok. My sister was on her way home in the Brandon area and said there's a bunch of trees down everywhere.
Really suspicious of the back edge of the trailing rain mass; with the sharp reflectivity boundary and very high velocities shown as it trails off I wonder if we're getting into a high wind event as it passes
