Short video but wow, this person is really close, no real condensation funnel but the damage is there occurring just down the street.

There is a neighborhood and RV park according to Google Maps.

There are also a lot of smaller houses scattered about relatively clustered if you draw a line from the current location to just north of Rosepine.

It may miss all of that and hit the timber facility between Rosepine & Fort Polk, as well as a tech college.

I'm growing more concerned for the main part of Fort Polk with the potential of a northward turn in the track. It's a huge base but the main complex of buildings and all is very dense.

It's a cycling supercell in a good environment. I'm racking my brain thinking about what's causing the cycling instead of a sustained long tracker. The winds are backed, low level SRH is quite high, no other storms to interact with. Odd.  Whatever the damage track(s) is/are tomorrow, it will be interesting. There are no spotter reports on this since the Seven Oaks area, yet there have been multiple debris balls, and other signatures, in a good environment. We have learned so much about tornadogenesis and forecasting the last decade, to the point we can use debris heights, to estimate tornadic wind speeds. But I still don't know of any literature that would explain why this supercell is cycling so much and others just "stay down". Not complaining, this would be a heck of a damage path if it was all on the ground. Wonder if the storm base here is higher and it's therefore having more trouble sustaining tornadoes on the ground, even though, say, 1k feet up, we've got a fairly continuous funnel. But earlier videos didn't show a high cloud base so that kinda puts cold water, somewhat literally, on that theory. 

 

Edit: spotter report did just come in suggesting a tornado in Jasper, from a 911 call center. 5 E of Jasper. So, that may have been the start of that particular touchdown. There is another uncorroborated report of the tornado OG in Jasper, of unknown magnitude, also 911 call center. That may have been strong RFD that gave off the appearance of a tornado. Won't know until much, much later. Can you imagine what this would have been like were it actually on the ground for the whole distance?

I think it has been on the ground virtually the whole time.  There haven't been any moments where the meso turned left and shed into the RFD.  Obviously this isn't always how cycling happens, but the debris signature has been so consistent.
