The severe weather event on April 10 spawned a number of tornados across Louisiana and Mississippi, the National Weather Service announced Wednesday.

"Due to the complexity of the event and the damage associated with it, additional time was needed to analyze the data. Satellite imagery was also received over the weekend. That, combined with additional ground surveys and radar analysis, led to 8 different tracks being identified between Slidell, LA and east through Kiln, MS. The EF2 track was extended at the start and shifted north at the end," said the NWS.

The agency notes there are still going over damage in Harrison and Jackson counties and further analyzing the tornado tracks in West Feliciana Parish.
