Survey Summary:
A tornado touched down near Bush Bottom Road. The tornado
initially did scattered damage to tree branches in open farmland
but quickly strengthened to its maximum intensity, estimated at
EF-1 with 100 mph maximum winds, as it destroyed two outbuildings
near Bush Bottom Road. The tornado continued generally east where
it crossed the Natchez Trace and Bill Downing Road. Damage in
these areas was mostly to trees and vegetation, but some
generally minor roof damage occurred to homes in the area.
Falling trees contributed to additional damage including downed
power lines and fencing. A few homes were more heavily damaged
due to trees falling onto them. The tornado continued eastward
causing additional tree and roof damage as it crossed Dupree Rd,
Stewart Dr, Carolyn Dr, and Old Port Gibson Rd before lifting at
MS Highway 18. There is a possibility this damage may have
resulted from two different tornado tracks, but evidence was
inconclusive.
