The storm approaching Council Grove is no longer tornadic, according to the NWS but still has a severe thunderstorm warning. The first severe event of the year, hereabout.

You'd think a tornado warning would be breaking news!

Exactly. Sirens in BC. Looks like it will run between Lawrence and Baldwin. Storm predator is tracking the cell at 77 mph. Whee, doggies!

riverdrifter 6 years ago NWS is the best. It's much harder to get all clears than the warnings. The all-clears seem to come as afterthoughts. You do have a weather radio, right, and it's programmed with the proper SAME code? If it's not, you'll get watches and warnings alarms from all over the place and you stop paying attention to it as a result. I use Osage county (139).
