On the afternoon of March 18, 2013, a long-lived supercell thunderstorm trucked slowly toward Jackson, MS. The storm developed in far southeast Arkansas, dropping hail larger than golfballs through the northeast corner of Louisiana and across the Mississippi River into the northwest side of Jackson. Hailstones up to the size of softballs were reported in Clinton, MS, just northwest of Jackson. The storm strengthened as it got into Jackson, and widespread baseball-sized hailstones were reported all over town. This storm continued its trek southeast before eventually weakening northeast of Laurel, MS. When it was all said and done, many cars, homes, and businesses throughout Jackson were damaged.
In wake of the violent EF-5 tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, WDT’s Forensic Meteorologists performed a detailed radar analysis of potential path of the storm.
Using Hi-Res Dual-Pol Nexrad radar data, we were able to provide accurate radar derived tornado paths for first reponsders and insurance carrierrs. Within hours of the storm,
WDT had these paths out to the public ensuring those that needed aid recieved it immediately.
WDT also worked with the City of Moore and the National GeoSpatial Intelligence Agency to provide these paths in the planning of six inch resolution aerial imagery the day after the storm.
