Hello tumblr friends!
There is a HIGH RISK for severe weather today (11/17).
...TORNADO OUTBREAK WITH MULTIPLE SIGNIFICANT TORNADOES AND
WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS EXPECTED ACROSS THE OH VALLEY AND SRN
GREAT LAKES REGION TODAY... FAVORABLE FOR STRONG TORNADOES WITH
SEVERAL LONG-TRACK DAMAGING TORNADOES EXPECTED TO OCCUR

What does this mean? It means that if you are in any of the states shaded in, that you need to begin your tornado preparedness actions now before the storms hit.
There are TONS of apps that have the NOAA Weather Radio integrated into them, as many people don’t have physical ones. Download one of those apps, or while you’re at it, download the Red Cross’ TORNADO app (available on iOS or Android) which will not only have a weather radio, but also use your location to alert you of severe weather warnings.
Please stay safe friends!
