The National Weather Service confirmed it was an EF-1 tornado with winds estimated at 100 mph that hit the area southwest of Hernando, MS before sunrise on Saturday, January 11, 2020.

No lives were reported lost in this tornado but damage to houses in the Love community on Hwy 51 and on Robinson Gin Road was extensive.  In addition, after it left the surface of Lake Arkabutla, the tornado apparently touched down in the midst of the Delta Sailing Association's lot at Hernando Point.  Large boats over 20' were pushed around or tipped over while many of the smaller boats were flipped or sent flying to different places on the lot.  A large stack of boats were piled three high in the center of the lot.  Many masts were snapped and significant fiberglass damage was sustained in many cases and several boats were outright destroyed.
