Tornado Warnings


 The one for Northeast Lauderdale and Northwest Limestone was confirmed by spotters. It is going through rural areas, but everyone in the path of any of these polygons needs to take shelter. Going to have to put severe thunderstorm warnings on the back burner for the moment, but if you see you are under one of those, take cover too - small central room on lowest floor of a sturdy house, away from windows. And cover your head if you can, esp in tornado warnings. 

And we just got a new one for a storm North of Courtland in Lawrence County. Rather than make a new post, I am just going to post updates here for a while. Will zoom in on Lawrence County first since it is newest. 




8:09 PM - All right, this is actually two overlapping tornado polygons. 

8:11 - Got another tornado rotation headed from Elkton over to Fayetteville. Also note the possible tornado slightly north of our area headed for places like Petersburg and Lynchburg in Tennessee. 

8:12 - Ok new issuance . . . storm clipping Northwest Madison County now, new Tornado Warning. Things are developing fast. 


Ok this is the storm that had a confirmed tornado earlier, heading up toward Elkmont and then Ardmore. The new warning does clip far Northwestern Madison County. 

The warning does include Harvest. 

Now let's look at the Dekalb/Jackson Co storm . . . 

8:16 - Okay that possible tornado South of Ider is getting ready to cross over into Georgia and does not look as strong as the others. But still if you are in that polygon, please take shelter and stay there until this passes. 

Going to focus on whichever storm is most dangerous at the moment. 




New Tornado Warning that includes Athens.



8:23 - Several overlapping tornado warnings here as you can see. 




8:24 - That tornado affecting areas from Taft up to Fayetteville has been confirmed. The NWS is asking people to take it very seriously as a life-threatening situation. 





And here's a closer look at that tornado. 


8:28 - And here is the broad view. Definitely be sheltered in Athens. Trying to remember everybody. Any of these warnings, get to shelter and stay there until these storms pass. Don't worry about whether the tornado is confirmed yet or not. 





The Tornado Warning including Fayetteville has been reissued, and remember we did have confirmation of a a tornado with this storm earlier, which is really something after dark. 

That goes until 9:15 and includes Huntland on the far Eastern edge of the warning polygon. 

Now let's look at the Athens storm, believe it has a debris signature, which confirms something is doing damage on the ground. 






8:34 - I don't like the look of this, even though the rotation looks broader than earlier. The correlation coefficient is still lowered, and this tornado is heading in the direction of Athens. If it doesn't hit there, probably be a close call. 


8:40 - Also some weak rotation showing up in this storm near Scottsboro, so everybody in that Severe Thunderstorm Warning needs to stay in a safe place. NWS Huntsville has a possible tornado tag in the warning. 





8:42 - Everyone in and near Athens stay sheltered from this tornado. 


8:44 - And here is the broad view again. Want everyone to see the updates wherever they are. Jumping from storm to storm a lot. 

8:46 - NWS Huntsville confirms the tornado moving into Athens. It has been observed, definitely on the ground now. 




8:48 - And all of a sudden we have four active tornado warning polygons, two of them are new. 

8:49 - WAFF-48's camera in Athens just went out. I take that as further confirmation of the tornado. Don't wait to see or hear any of these, just get to safety. 


8:50 - This new Tornado Warning affects Elkmont, Ardmore, Hazel Green, and New Market. 

KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS TORNADO HAS BEEN CONFIRMED BY TRAINED SPOTTERS.

TORNADO WARNING in Huntsville! New post coming now.
