JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The National Weather Service now says 43 tornadoes touched down in Mississippi on April 18, making it the second worst tornado outbreak in the state's history.
A survey of storm damage on Friday revealed three more tornadoes — two in northeast Noxubee County and one in southern Lowndes County.
An earlier survey found five tornadoes in Winston County and one that started in Winston County and ended in Noxubee County.
However, most of the tornadoes on that Thursday were in the central part of the state.
Meteorologists say they are still not through evaluating storm damage.
They plan to visit Scott County on Monday to see if the statewide total is higher than 43.
