4/7 Damage Assessments

Louisiana
Shreveport NWSFO (1)
F0 - ? - 6mi ENE of Farmerville to Linville - Length: ?; Width: ?

Preliminary tornado reports: 71*
Confirmed in PNS: 46
All path widths are maximum path widths. I think the Prelim tornado reports (from SPC) are increasing as NWSFOs release more 'official' LSRs, making for many duplicates (since I don't think they can 'remove' previously-issued LSRs that were more preliminary). Tornadoes are divided by the state in which the NWSFO that covers the area in which the tornado occurred is located (i.e. all tornadoes in the Paducah CWA will go in the Kentucky list, even if a tornado occurred in the IN part of PAH's CWA).

F0 - 20
F1 - 19
F2 - 4
F3 - 2
F4 - 0
F5 - 0
F? - 1

Interesting the picture seems to be different from the original. So those of you looking at it now don't think I'm nutty the original had a cement slab where a house used to be wiped completely clean.

If you're nutty for thinking that, then I must be on my way to the "wacko-basket" with you. Because I remember seeing that exact pic as well.

I've added the latest from Nashville NWSFO, and I added a slew of tornadoes from the Huntsville NWSFO. I'm also adding links to stories on the NWS webpages that contain photos, track maps, and/or radar images.
 
I posted a few quick photos from our stops in Gallatin and Goodlettsville, TN. Just large-sized images on this page (no time for thumbnails) so slow connections beware.

Updated to add refined info from KFFC, and to add info from KBMX. I can't help but note the relative lack of >F2 tornadoes...
