Plane crash in Attala County. Police say Allen Ross of Kosciusko was piloting the plane when it went down. Ross and his passenger, Mark Denson, were both killed in the crash. The Federal Aviation Administration is helping out with the investigation to see what exactly caused the plane to crash.

There’s good and bad news this week when it comes to weather, so I’ll give you the bad news first. Rainy days all week this week could usher in some big flooding. East Mississippi could see as much as six inches of rain, North and west Mississippi could see up to four inches. The problem here lies with the ground already being saturated from last week’s wet weather. So if you’re living and driving along the Yazoo, Big Black, Tombigbee and Upper Pearl rivers, have a plan in place for that flooding.

Now for the good news… at least we aren’t seeing a threat of tornadoes this week. Greg Carbin with the National Weather Service says on average, Mississippi gets about 5 tornadoes in the month of March each year. Carbin says that as of right now, the threat just isn’t there. However, as we move through March and into April, that’s when more attention turns to the weather as April is a very active month for tornadoes in Mississippi. On average, April gets about 9 tornadoes.

And gas prices are expected to stay about where they are.  Oil expert Trilby Lundberg says crude oil prices are stable, and that’s why the prices are expected to stay about where they are.  What do you think about the gas prices? Let us know on Facebook or on Twitter at News_MS.
