Mississippi is in the middle of the Dixie Alley and is affected by tornadoes within the state, as well as high winds resulting from hurricanes in Louisiana, and tornadoes in neighboring states. The state has also seen local catastrophes in the north and southern areas in recent years. Torshel serves the state of Mississippi, including the Jackson Metro Area (City of Jackson, Ridgeland, Canton, Pearl, Ridgeland, and Flowood), Hattiesburg, Southaven, Oxford, Tupelo, Clarksdale, Biloxi, and Gulfport.
Mississippi has a history of record-breaking tornadoes, including some in 1971 and 2010. Tornadoes also seem to strike more often at night, and the many trees that form the landscape can make it difficult to spot tornadoes as they form. 43 tornadoes were recorded in Mississippi for 2013.
Other things to consider if you live in Mississippi are:
- Its location near bodies of water such as the Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain, and the Gulf of Mexico (for those in the southern portion of the state).
- The high number of hurricanes in the Gulf Coast that could trigger tornadoes in northern parts of the state.
- Foliage that could keep storm chasers and residents from seeing a tornado when it appears.
- A high number of mobile homes, which put people at risk during even weaker storms.
- Many southern tornadoes are likely to occur at night when they are harder to see.
