Possible Tornado Touches Down in Mamou [Video]
We knew there was a good chance of some strong storms rolling through Acadiana today, but there was only a small chance of the real severe stuff.
However, it appears the folks near Mamou may have just experienced what many of us dread -- a tornado.
While it is yet to be confirmed by the National Weather Service, the video captured below by April Carraway shows what could be tornadic activity in the Evangeline Parish town.
Cajun Weather Spotters of Acadiana re-shared Carraway's post with the caption reading in part: "Hard to confirm it as a tornado from this video, but definitely gives a few of how eerie it looked."
Regardless if this is a tornado or just a bad thunderstorm, it's a good reminder that we should all heed the advice of our local meteorologists and be weather aware during storm warnings.
Speaking of, the late morning/early afternoon was littered with tornado warnings for portions of Acadiana including St. Landry and Evangeline parishes.
