Intense Storms in 1987

On this day in 1987, severe weather struck Louisiana and Mississippi. While severe weather can occur during any time of the year, this system had a couple quite astonishing moments. First off, this storm produced tornadoes, injuring a total of 11 people (and thankfully no casualties). There were a couple other storms which definitely seemed interesting. The first storm was south of Sulphur, LA, and had 100 mph winds. This storm resulted in 1 casualty. The other storm had substantial rainfall, with 1.5 inches falling in just 10 minutes in Jackson, MS.
