EARLY MORNING UPDATE.
I WILL UPDATE AGAIN AROUND 10 and 11 a.m. this morning...
THE STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN, OKLAHOMA SAYS THAT THERE IS A HIGH RISK OF TORNADOES AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS OUR AREA TODAY.
THIS WILL PROB BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT OUTBREAK SINCE LAST MAY. IT IS - AS ALWAYS - IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL YOU WHAT COUNTY WILL GET HIT WITH WHAT KIND OF WEATHER.]
I EXPECT ALMOST EVERY SINGLE COUNTY IN THE TRI-STATE AREA TO BE HIT BY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.
THIS IS NOT A NORMAN WEATHER SITUATION - THIS IS A DANGEROUS WEATHER SITUATION WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF LONG-TRACKED DAMAGING/VIOLENT TORNADOES.
MORE THAN 88 REPORTS SO FAR AT 2 AM OF TORNADOES FROM SATURDAY. IT WILL LIKELY GO ABOVE 100. THIS IS A NEAR RECORD OUTBREAK OF TORNADOES.
MANY TOWNS HAVE BEEN HIT VERY HARD BY SIGNIFICANT TORNADOES LAST NIGHT.
IF YOU ARE GOING CAMPING OR ANYWHERE THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND REMEMBER THAT NEWS CHANNEL SIX IS ON 87.7 OR SO. YOU CAN LISTEN TO THEM LIVE - OR YOU CAN LISTEN TO YOUR WEATHER RADIO IF YOU HAVE ONE.
MAKE PLANS NOW - SAFETY PLANS FOR SEVERE WEATHER. THIS MEANS HAVING BLANKETS OR SHEETS PLACED IN YOUR SAFE AREA.
A SMALL BATHROOM OR A CLOSET WILL WORK IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A BASEMENT.
PREPARE NOW FOR THE POTENTIAL OF A MAJOR OUTBREAK OF SEVERE WEATHER TODAY.
HOPEFULLY MY FORECAST WILL BUST AND WE WILL NOT GET WHAT IF IT APPEARS WE ARE GETTING.
THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS OUR AREA TODAY. SUPERCELL THUNDERSTORMS CAN PRODUCE BASEBALL SIZE HAIL, WINDS OVER 70 MILES PER HOUR, VERY FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND LARGE - LONG TRACKED TORNADOES - SOME OF WHICH COULD BE VIOLENT F3-F4 RANGE.

Monday, May 31st
Hi everyone. What a weekend. I knew it would be bad, but geeesh the damage reports in some areas are just incredible. Fifty-percent of one town in Indiana was wiped out. Almost every county in the Paducah Warning area reported some type of damage. Portions of Massac County had trees down. Marvin Korte's Carport was blown off along with part of his roof. Other reports of damage throughout McCracken County, where the tornado hit. Numerous reports of large hail.
The sky turned GREEN from where I was standing here at the river and you could see the rotation in the storm as it approached. Here is just how BLACK it got here, follow these pictures:
I got some bears for the Game Room, to go
with the Indian and the Horse! :)
OH AND THE WEATHER TODAY :) THE DAY AFTER.
Wednesday - June 2nd -
Hi everyone - I am having computer problems so there might not be updates for a few days - trying to get Comcast Cable in here to fix me up - So ANYWAY, mother has a mover, I will post some pics eventually.
