Storms slam south
Storms slam south

It appears that McNairy County dodged a bullet early this week as a strong series of storms moved through McNairy County beginning last Sunday night and extending into Tuesday. 

As of press time the storms had spawned more than 106 tornados and claimed more than 28 lives in several states. 

The storms began west of the Mississippi River on Sunday as 30 tornados struck in several western states claiming more 16 lives. As the storms moved into Mississippi and Alabama on Monday, another round of 58 tornados brought destruction to those states including a mile-wide tornado which struck the commercial district of Tupelo, Miss. near the city’s mall. The shopping area, popular with McNairy County shoppers, on Tupelo’s northern edge sustained severe damage. Several popular restaurants, stores and hotels were completely destroyed in the storm.
