The path of damage is over 150 miles long, stretching from Tallulah, Louisiana to Starkville, Mississippi. It is still unclear if this was one continuous tornado or a multiple tornadoes - but it was caused by the same parent super cell thunderstorm complex.

Another hard hit area was northeast Alabama - where tornadoes touched down and caused numerous injuries with serious damage. One twister was on the ground nearly 30 miles.
