(CNN)The calendar says it's nearly Christmas, but the damage looks more like spring.

A powerful storm system roared across parts of the South, claiming eight lives in Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas and injuring scores more.

The Storm Prediction Center said at least 14 tornadoes hit Mississippi on Wednesday, but a single twister did most of the damage.

It started in northern Mississippi and didn't lift up until western Tennessee. The National Weather Service said it may have been on the ground 150 miles.

"If it is continuous it would be the longest track (December) tornado on record here in the mid-South," the Memphis office of the weather service said.
