Tornado Warning (Shoals)

 Had a few technical glitches, trying to iron them out. Probably nobody uses this as primary source but trying to post relevant updates anyway. 

10:37 - Still have to watch this supercell with a history of producing significant tornado damage back in MS. It is in a weakening phase for right now. But supercells like this can cycle back up. Everyone upstream here in Alabama needs to watch how this thing moves and if it maintains or regains strength. It still is showing some signs of producing a tornado on radar. 

10:39 - And now another tornado warning extending up to state line. 

10:48 - Need to stay sheltered if in the polygon for either one of these tornado-producing storms. The one around Amory, MS has a history of producing extensive tornado damage earlier in Mississippi, tornadic supercell. The one up around the Shoals is still dangerous. Need to be in a small central room on the lowest floor of a sturdy house, not a mobile home, and cover your head. Use a basement if you have one.
