Tornado Watch: Kansas & Oklahoma

The NWS has issued a tornado watch for much of central and northeast Kansas and a part of north central Oklahoma until 11pm CDT.

In addition to a risk of tornadoes, they are forecasting a "high" risk of hail ≥2" in diameter.

My recommendations?
  • See below for tornado suggestions.
  • In addition, put the car in the garage to protect it from hail.
  • Put trampolines and other items that can blow about indoors. 
  • Time to make sure your children and infirm relatives are aware of the watch and have a plan for quickly getting them to shelter. 
Note: While I no longer live-blog storms, I will update at least another couple of times through this evening.

Below is the radar at 3:06pm. The storms in central Kansas are moving ENE.
