Severe Weather/Tornadoes Expected This Afternoon

The Storm Prediction Center and the National Weather Service are calling for an EXTREME SEVERE WEATHER event. It is time to invoke situational awareness, think and prepare. Please do not get caught off guard this afternoon and evening if this situation pans out.

The risks are:
  • Tornadoes with the potential of LONG TRACK STRONG TORNADOES
  • Large hail with golg ball size hail likely and baseball size hail possible
  • Damaging Winds near 70 MPH
  • Heavy rain with localized flash flooding
Folks in SE KS, NE OK, NW AR and extreme SW MO are in the highest risk area. Again, please think ahead and plan now.

You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery. If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radio, you should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.
