The National Weather Service has had a very busy day surveying damage in multiple areas of our viewing area after several possible tornadoes were reported in our coverage areas.

They have confirmed that today’s incident at Baton Rouge General Hospital was indeed an EF-1 tornado with a width of about 25-50 yards.

Witnesses say just before the tornado struck the sky became really dark and there was a loud ‘boom’.

More details will be available tomorrow.
