SEVERE WEATHER UPDATE FOR TUESDAY 4/26/16
*****SEVERE WEATHER UPDATE FOR TUESDAY (4/26/16)
PLEASE REMEMBER DURING CHASING WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF QUESTIONS COMING IN. THE BEST WAY TO GET YOUR QUESTION ANSWERED IS TO COMMENT ON ONE OF OUR POSTS… DO NOT MESSAGE THE PAGE!!!
Ok, after long consideration and reviewing of models that have been ALL OVER the place…. Everyone needs to prepare for the worst case scenario. We pray things will settle down before, but in the off chance they do not, we want you all to be prepared! Review all tornado precautions with your family, prepare your big out bags, and charge all devices!
Included in my graphic, areas shaded are people that need to be especially weather aware tomorrow!!!! I can not stress that enough. Basically, Anyone east of highway 81 to Arkansas border. The initiation times are between 2-5pm tomorrow and threats will last into overnight hours!
PRIMARY THREATS INCLUDE-
Large to giant hail (4+in and up to grapefruit) FYI hail larger than 3″ can penetrate roof and come inside your home. Have sturdy protection for hail inside your home, incase you’re affected by the giant hail.
Strong Long track tornadoes
Wind up to 70mph
With all that being said, here are some other threats…
People stopping under overpasses to protect vehicles from hail- DO NOT DO THIS. YOU CAN REPLACE VEHICLES, YOU CAN NOT REPLACE LIVES!
Hydro planing from water on roadways. ESPECIALLY I44.
STAY OFF THE ROADS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE TOMORROW AFTERNOON!
ANYONE THAT THINKS THEY ARE A STORM CHASER AND THINKS THIS IS A REGULAR STORM DAY SHOULD ****NOT**** BE ON THE ROADS TOMORROW… IF YOURE NOT TERRIFIED OF WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE AN OUTBREAK AND LIFE THREATINING DAY, YOU SHOULD NOT BE ON THE ROADS CHASING THESE STORMS! PERIOD!!!!
I have had over a decade of experience chasing and I’ll be honest… If things pan out to be an outbreak situation I am terrified for everyone that will be affected. We are not in this for the thrill.
OSC will be tracking these through the state and we will keep you all up to date!
I also would like to add that I try to stay PC on our page… But for this situation… I will be praying for everyone in these areas and I hope you all will join me in this as well!
