Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 AM CDT on April 24, 2017

Expires 11:00 AM EDT on April 24, 2017


... On this date in weather history...

In 1908, the Dixie tornado outbreak overwhelmed 6 states,
causing a tremendous loss of life. Comprised of 16
killer tornadoes, the outbreak killed 320. Hardest hit
were Louisiana Mississippi and Alabama. Three of the
twisters were huge f4s. The worst F4 tore through
eastern Louisiana and southern Mississippi. It killed
143 and injured 770 along a 155-mile track and around 2
miles wide. Putting that into perspective, the distance
from Wichita to Oklahoma City is around 160 miles. The
monstrous vortex leveled Purvis, MS where 55 died. Early
that morning, an F4 with a 90-mile track that averaged
one half mile wide killed 91 and injured around 400 as it
tore through northeast Louisiana and southwest
Mississippi. The third F4 that roared across northern
Alabama killed 35 and injured 108. It had a 105-mile
track and was nearly one half mile wide. The 'land of
dixie' could easily be nicknamed 'the land of long track
tornadoes.'
