The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for the area at 9:40 a.m. (10:40 a.m. EST). Earlier Wednesday, three suspected tornadoes hit the New Orleans area the morning after Mardi Gras. Severe thunderstorms, with tornadoes reported, began Tuesday in northeastern Texas and moved into Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi overnight. Tornadoes will continue to be a threat as the storms advance through the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama and Georgia Wednesday.

The threat for severe thunderstorms continues along the Gulf Coast through this evening, after nearly a dozen tornadoes were reported in Louisiana, Alabama, Florida and Georgia this morning and afternoon. A hurricane-force wind gust of 77 mph was measured at New Orleans International Airport as the thunderstorms blasted through. In just a half an hour, 3 inches of rain fell.
