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.
