Rarest Type of Watch = High Storm Danger

Tornadoes, winds of 90 mph, and hail to 3."  

I agree -- this is a particularly dangerous situation!

Complete your safety measures now!
  • Call friends and relatives to make sure they are aware of the threat, especially if they live in a mobile home. 
  • Make sure you have at least three ways of receiving storm warnings. 
  • If you live in a mobile home, you may wish to move spend time with a friend or relative when a tornado or severe thunderstorm watch is issued. 
  • Ask yourself what you would need if you were without electricity for five days. In some areas it will be longer, but five days is a good planning target.
  • If you have a chain saw, fill it with fuel.
  • Any essential foods or medicines should be taken care of immediately, well before the storms arrive. 
  • Keep the kids in close communication. 
  • Bring in lawn furniture, trampolines or anything else that can blow away. 
  • Put the car in the garage. 
Keep in mind that 90 mph winds + wet soil are a receipe for extensive power outages and trees blocking roads. Combine that with large hail driven by the winds and it will be extremely destructive.
