Serious Tornado Risk Friday and Saturday


Tornadoes and damaging winds are possible throughout the red area. Violent tornadoes and extreme thunderstorm winds are forecast in the hatched area.

Same color pattern as Friday's.

How to Prepare.
  • Make sure you have fresh batteries for your weather radio.
  • Keep your laptop and cell phone charged until you hear thunder. After that time, a power surge is possible which might damage your equipment. 
  • Clear your shelter area of any obstacles. Put a couple of bottles of water inside.
  • Remember to wear shoes into shelter. 
  • You should have at least two independent sources for warnings beyond sirens. Examples would be a NOAA weather radio and the AccuWeather app on your smartphone. Make sure you take these to your bedroom if you are under a tornado watch when you retire for the night. The two make a pretty good "tornado alarm."
