Summer 2014

Spring Review

Spring 2013 started off quiet thanks to the harsh winter across much of the United States.

The tornado season started off slow, but by the end of April a large outbreak occurred causing major damage from April 27-30. Numerous tornadoes ripped across parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Florida. A large, violent tornado struck Mayflower and Vilonia, Arkansas, on April 27 causing severe damage. The tornado was rated a high-end EF4, the first violent tornado of the year. Another tornado on the 28th occurred when an EF4 tornado struck Louisville, Mississippi. EF3s caused major damage and fatalities in Coxey, Alabama and Tupelo, Mississippi as well. Overall, this outbreak produced 80 tornadoes and killed 35 people.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor report, 37.3 percent of the contiguous U.S. was in drought. In Texas, extreme and exceptional drought coverage in the state is five times greater than at the start of the calendar year. Drought conditions worsened in parts of Kansas and Oklahoma. The long- and short-term dry conditions across the Southern Plains and the West helped fuel several large wildfires that threatened homes during May.
