Heavy rain, high winds, and potential tornadoes (NWS verification forthcoming) struck Memphis, TN earlier today, damaging a shopping mall just east of the city. SPC reports indicate the tornado was not far from interstates 240 and 40 with some tree limbs falling on the highway. Luckily, it doesn’t appear the tornado ever crossed the highway. At present, it doesn’t appear anyone was injured.
Most of the rain has moved out of the area, but there are flood watches and warnings throughout western TN. This same system could produce severe weather in the mid-Atlantic region tomorrow.
