Today in weather history

In 2004...

A 2-day tornado outbreak continued across the Deep South where Mississippi and Alabama were hit. The most dangerous was a behemoth with a track 49 miles that reached nearly a mile wide as it roared through Central Alabama early that morning. Fortunately, the monstrosity hit mainly rural areas. There were no injuries or fatalities but $630,000 damage resulted. One tornado, an F3 with a track 21 miles long and around one third of a mile wide that tore through Eastern Mississippi just northeast of Philadelphia very early in the morning, killed 1, injured 2, and caused $2.66 million damage. Considering the tornado struck at 225 am, its fortunate the death toll wasn't higher. In all, a staggering 93 tornadoes occurred during this outbreak, making it the 2nd worst November outbreak on record.
