Arizona Dust Storm

I know it's not exactly an Ozarks thing, but it's pretty crazy and I wanted to share!

Severe Storms Possible This Afternoon and Evening

The Storm Prediction Center has Eastern KS and a large portion of MO in a slight risk box for severe weather. The Springfield National Weather Service office reports 60 MPH wind gusts and hail to the size of quarters is possible today.

The risks include:

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.
