Because of its proximity to New Orleans, Jackson may occasionally bear the brunt of high winds caused by hurricanes in the Gulf Coast. Tornadoes are also common in the area. The most violent tornado that has ever touched down in Jackson, MS occurred on March 3, 1966 and was called the Candlestick Park tornado. Sadly 57 lives were lost and an estimated 500 injuries occurred as well.
Technology has changed and storm shelters, which are more dependable than storm cellars, have now become more common.
