|Risk of severe weather in general|
|Risk of a tornado|
(15% may not seem like a lot, but from experience, when there is a 15% chance of a tornado, tornadoes usually strike.)
If you live in these areas, I am begging you to heed all warnings and watches issued by the National Weather Service. Too often people think the tornado won't strike their area. Tornado warnings are issued for an area that is truly at risk- it doesn't work like an isolated area is affected and the rest of the warning area is just in case. No, when a tornado warning is at risk, everyone in the warning box has an equal chance of being affected.
Today looks like there will be a tornado outbreak of sorts, and i'm trying to minimize on the number of possible deaths. Stay safe and aware of the skies, everyone. We will begin live posting later this afternoon when the event ramps up.
