After becoming the top dog (no pun intended) in college football, the city of Starkville had some additional excitement. A line of storms rolled through the town of my alma mater, Mississippi State University, and caused damage and power outages Monday afternoon.
Mississippi and neighboring states in the deep south was and continues to be under the gun with a potent October storm that brings a moderate risk of severe weather. A line of potent thunderstorms moved through the town. People on social media posted images of damage, as well as posts reporting power outages across town.

The line of storms, as well as some discrete cells ahead of the line, continue to prompt warnings.
A slight risk of severe weather remains for the panhandle and Big Bend area on Tuesday – including Tallahassee.
