Since April 1, 2020, hundreds of tornadoes have been reported across the eastern half of the United States. Between now and Friday, another storm system could generate even more tornadoes from the Southern Plains to the Deep South. According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), “Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop east of th e Interstate 35 of southern Oklahoma into north-central Texas by late Wednesday afternoon. Significant severe storms are expected over parts of the Southeast, including the potential for strong tornadoes.”
Some forecast models are suggesting the possibility of strong or violent tornadoes over parts of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. A strong tornado, based on the National Weather Service classification, would have wind speeds of 111 mph to 165 mph (EF-2 or above) while a violent tornado would have wind speeds of 166 mph to 200 mph (EF-4) or above. Around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, storms are expected to be especially severe before moving on by Thursday morning into the lower Mississippi Valley. Over 16 million people in cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, and Mobile in Alabama, Atlanta in Georgia, and even Jacksonville in Florida, will be at risk.
