Tornando Reports In Deep SouthA tornado reportedly touched down near the town of Tangipahoa, Louisiana this morning lifting up a two-story house and moving it 10 feet from its foundation. An unoccupied tractor-trailer was also thrown into the air.

It’s a result of a strong system that’s produced pop-up storm cells throughout the Deep South this morning.

Tornado Hits Deep SouthIn Terrebone Parish near Houma, Louisiana, the local emergency manager confirms there was a tornado touchdown near the Houma-Terrebone Airport. Emergency responders report damage to homes and buildings.

In Marion, Mississippi police say a reported tornado left a swath of trees down a quarter mile long near Bunker Hill and Grice Roads. Four people were reported trapped inside a house, but they were rescued and transported to a local hospital with non-critical injuries.

As the storms move east, another possible tornado reportedly touched down in Sumter County in Alabama with trees down and possible injuries. Survey teams will be out later Wednesday to examine the damage.

Property owners along the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean should strongly consider installing hurricane shutters. Category 5 hurricanes can result in structural damages in excess of 15 miles from the shore. Cat 5 hurricane shutters are recommended for all regions close to the shore.
