Tornadoes ripped through four states on Tuesday (January 29) night and Wednesday (January 30), killing at least two people, as an Arctic cold front clashed with warm air to produce severe weather over a wide swath of the nation.
Tornadoes were reported in Mississippi, Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee, an unusual development in January when the focus is more likely to be on snow and ice.
The National Weather Service said twisters touched down in Sardis, Mississippi, and heavily damaged homes in Solsberry, Indiana, wiping out power in the surrounding areas. Three twisters were confirmed in Tennessee and a possible tornado hit southeastern Arkansas. This twister, caught on camera, was seen in the states of Georgia. One man was killed in that state when a tornado hit his mobile home late Wednesday morning, said Bartow County administrator Pete Olson.
The same storm system is moving eastward, bringing a risk of severe weather from the upper Ohio Valley south to the central Gulf Coast and east to the Mid-Atlantic and southeast coast, according to the National Weather Service. Damaging winds of up to 70 miles per hour (113 km/h), hail and more tornadoes are possible.
