Another Video of Yazoo City MS Tornado

he tornado that swept from northeastern Louisiana across Mississippi almost to the Alabama border was large and partially hidden in clouds and rain at times- as you can see by the accompanying screen-capture images.

Yesterday's video showed a massive wedge-shaped funnel approaching Yazoo City- today's video from the Associated Press shows only a dark- swirling cloud mass that is- for the most part- unrecognizable as a tornado.

I've seen these types of tornadoes- the last being in Pleasant Hill in 1977- and they are deceptive and VERY dangerous since there's no discernable funnel.

More severe weather is forecast later this week- Thursday and/or Friday- across the Central States- including Metro Kansas City.
