Light clouds covering the sky, temperatures hovering around 75 with slightly elevated humidity, no rain all day and the tornado siren went off!
So, I jumped up and turned on the TV to catch the weather updates and find out where the tornado was spotted and where it's headed.
Not one local channel is broadcasting anything about a tornado sighting! Not one! Nope, not even the local 'weather channel'. So...has there been a tornado sighting? Should I be concerned? There isn't even a tornado watch on the local channels....
The meteorologist just came on the TV channel and said -
Funnel clouds have been reported but there are No Warnings at this time....
No sightings?? No warnings?? Why did the d@mn tornado siren go off then??
I tell ya, brainless people in charge can really cause a panic easily.....
well its 104 in florida with 110% humidity wana trade
It is presently 84 degrees here with humidity at 58% and a Isolated Thunderstorm watch in effect, with a Tornado warning advisory.
a tornado warning advisory...what does that mean? there's a tornado warning? a tornado watch? Here I thought these terms were the same all over the country...
It's just an advisory. They do not want to scare everyone by saying that it a possibility of happening. Apparently they are tracking one from outside the state of Mass, but we are going to get Thundershowers.
In the little town I'm from the same siren is used for many things. You have to know how many consecutive sirens means what. I can never remember how many means what. I just know when it goes off there is either a fire, a tornado, or a town meeting. LOL If it looks like bad weather, I just assume it's that.
omg - that's insane! lol I have heard of that, though. Like...a solid siren means this and a rotating siren means that while a 3 minute siren means something else....I think I'd keep a list somewhere, like inside a closet door - just so I'd know. lol
I've lived here since the early 80s, but my husband has only been here for 3 years coming from England. Just recently, we had stopped at the store for something and then needed to stop at the post office for our mail. They are only a couple of blocks apart. My husband said he'd walk and I could drive the car over and we'd meet at the post office. It just so happens that the city hall is in the block between the two locations. As he was making that walk, they fired off the sirens and they are super loud at that spot. I quickly looked in the direction of my husband because I knew he would probably be laid out in the street with a heart attack. He was looking all around like a scared little bunny. Being in Texas, we're in tornado alley and it's tornado season. However, I looked at sky, it seemed clear, then I looked at my car clock and saw that it was 7:00 pm on a Tuesday night. It was time for a meeting. LOL
