Severe T-Storm Warning (PDS)



This may have winds of hurricane force. Please take shelter similar to how you would from a tornado - small central room or hallway on the lowest floor of a sturdy house. Cover body, esp head from potential debris if you have time. 

11:27 AM - This one was bad enough trip WEA on cell phones, hardly ever happens for severe thunderstorm warnings. Hopefully people will pay attention. Tell people in the path if you know anyone, need to take this one very seriously. 



11:36 - All along and ahead of this squall line, stay sheltered. Somewhere just reported sustained winds of 72 mph but things got hectic and I do not remember where. 

11:42 - Basically all of Northeast Alabama included in the severe thunderstorm warning now. And these winds could be hurricane force and destructive.
