Remarks & Notes 
In the early morning hours of January 11th, 2020 an EF-1 tornado tore through the south end of Hernando, MS. About a two and a half weeks later GRYR 2651 rolls south through the damage with cars for Carlisle Syntec in Senatobia, MS under the threatening clouds of a similar cold front. According to the NWS this tornado traveled 11.3 miles and had a 200 yard max width. This tornado lifted up about a mile east of this location. This storm went on to produce another tornado - an EF-2 that tore through Lewisburg, MS. In all the storm caused over $14 million in property damage. Luckily no one was killed and to my knowledge there were no serious injuries. For those interested in analyzing tornado damage from a drone's POV, it is possible to deduce from this image alone (without the help of NWS) that this is a tornado path. Sharp eyes will note several minor convergences (trees that have fallen in a criss-crossed pattern). The most obvious is the trees just to the right of the blue stream that have criss-crossed each other in an x-pattern. In straight-line winds and microbursts all trees will fall in the same direction, while the presence of rotation in tornadoes will leave trees to fall in a convergent pattern. Given the convergence apparent here, it is safe to say that this damage was caused by a tornado and not straight-line winds, although its worth noting that given it's only minor convergence, it's from a weakening tornado.
