The National Weather Service office in Jackson spent the remainder of the weekend surveying areas where radar indicated likely tornadoes. 

Preliminary findings show that early Saturday morning an EF-2 tornado originated in Jasper county before traveling 28 miles into Lauderdale county. Plus an EF-1 tornado passed over parts of Smith County. 

Meanwhile, other surveys indicate that the large tornado which passed through parts of  Yazoo city may have been a wide as 1.75 miles and cut a path 97 miles long.

These surveys are preliminary and more studies are being conducted.  You can read this report in full here.
