... On this date in weather history...

In 1987, the same powerful storm that struck much of the
northern and Southern Plains on the 27th hit the deep
south.An F4 tornado with a track 40 miles long and up
to 2 miles wide roared through southeast Mississippi in
the morning. It killed 6, injured 350, and caused $28.5
million damage. Had the tornado struck on a weekday, it
is likely the casualties would have been much higher as
an Elementary School in the town of Glade was nearly
destroyed.
