Unfortunately, I can't spend time on the anniversary because I want to provide essential information to my readers about today's major severe weather threats.
Scroll down for information on the tornado watches in Texas and the continuing flood threat.
For the rest of today and tonight: Here is the tornado threat. Remember, 5% (brown) is the significant threshold.
For damaging thunderstorm winds:
For large hail:
So, what do you do?
- Be prepared to take shelter when storms approach. Make sure friends and relatives are aware and that dependents can reach shelter quickly.
- Move lawn furniture, trampolines and automobiles indoors/garage.
- If you live in a flood-prone area, be prepared to move to higher ground at the first sign of rising water.
- Whatever you do, do not try to crossed flooded areas by foot or by car.
I will provide a couple of additional updates this afternoon.
