April storms move thru USA

Spring hailstorm pelts Texas Panhandle
April 12, 2012  WFAA
An unusual spring storm in the Texas Panhandle Wednesday afternoon dumped two to four feet of hail near Dumas.

Trucks were reported sliding off the road on Highway 287 as a result of the unexpected weather phenomenon.
Snow plows were being used to clear the roads.
Some vehicles were trapped in the drifts of hailstones.

Chief Meteorologist Pete Delkus said a tornado watch was in effect for the Panhandle region through 10 p.m. Wednesday,
and the storms were moving very slowly between Pampa and Dumas north of Amarillo and to the east of Dalhart.
Melting hail and heavy rain triggered flash flooding in the Panhandle

On TV this morning I saw people standing in deep hail.  It was astonishing!

Hail, Tornado Threat Across the Plains
Apr 12, 2012
After a few powerful storms on Wednesday, a more significant episode of severe weather is expected later today across the central and southern Plains.
Large, damaging hail will continue to be a huge concern from any thunderstorm, with conditions also appearing ripe for the development of a few tornadoes.
A storm system emerging from the Rockies will be the "trigger" for today's active weather, clashing with warm and unstable air in place from Texas to Kansas.

Important Tornado Safety Tips to Follow
Tornadoes extend from severe thunderstorms and usually develop from the trailing end of a storm. The air may become very still before one hits. It is also not uncommon for the sun to be visible or skies to clear partially during a tornado. Some are easily seen and detected, while others strike quickly with little or no warning.
Some warning signs of a tornado include strong winds with cloud-base rotation, whirling dust and debris, hail and/or heavy rain and a loud rumble or roar that sounds similar to a moving train.
If it is nighttime, look for bright blue- or green-colored flashes near the ground. That is an indication of snapped power lines and an almost sure sign of intense wind or a tornado.
Two of the most fundamental precautions that you can take in the event of a tornado, no matter where you are, is staying low to or below the ground in an interior space away from windows and covering your head with your hands and arms.

Storm forecasting  April 15, 2012  Sunday  
Severe storms were predicted for U.S. heartland over the weekend.  
A "high end life threatening event" was forecast.  A new over-hyped warning system has begun.
A torcon index of 8 and 9 was given.  Looking back now on Sunday evening, I'd say it was VERY
over-hyped.  I'd say the torcon should have been 1 or 2 not 8.

Severe weather alert: Tornado warnings issued Friday
April 13, 2012  Forecasters and emergency managers began issuing alerts Friday about the threat of storms occurring and continuing into Saturday, and as expected, storms popped up in central Oklahoma. Tornado sirens were activated in Shawnee, Tecumseh and other areas in Pottawatomie County about 5 p.m. Friday when storms with rotation and reported funnels moved through the area. No damage was reported.

The threat of a tornado outbreak remains today and into Sunday, with officials asking everyone to be weather aware this weekend.

Storm spotters and law enforcement officers were among those watching the skies Friday evening in Pottawatomie County as a storm that dropped a tornado in Norman skipped across this area.

Shawnee/Pottawatomie County Emergency Management Director Don Lynch said there were reports of tornadoes in three areas — about one mile south of Independence on Drummond Road, in the area of Old Highway 270 and U.S. 177 and north of Westech Road on SH 18.

More twisters reported Sunday after deadly barrage

Updated at 7:58 p.m. ET: A long and wide swath of the central U.S. is in a severe storm danger zone on Sunday, following twisters that killed at least five people and caused damage across the Midwest on Saturday.

By early Sunday afternoon, at least two tornadoes reportedly briefly touched down in Nebraska. One caused damage to two buildings in Wheeler County. Oklahoma and Minnesota also each saw one suspected twister, though no damage was reported.

The areas "most likely" to see tornadoes on Sunday afternoon and evening, the National Weather Service said, are parts of Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

"Severe storms are also possible in a band from Illinois and Missouri southward into Arkansas, northwest Louisiana and east Texas," the service added. severe weather expert Greg Forbes assigned a 70 percent chance for tornadoes in parts of Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin on Sunday.

Residents digging out after tornadoes hit Midwest
By SEAN MURPHY | Associated Press – 1 hr 43 mins ago.

WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) — The television was tuned to forecasters' dire warnings of an impending storm when Greg Tomlyanobich heard a short burst from a tornado siren blare after midnight Sunday. Then silence. Then rumbling.

The 52-year-old quickly grabbed his wife and grandson, hurrying them into the emergency cellar as debris whirled around their heads at their mobile home park in northwest Oklahoma. They huddled inside with about 20 other people before the tornado — among dozens that swept across the nation's midsection during the weekend — roared across the ground above, ripping homes from their foundations.

"It scared the hell out of me," Tomlyanobich said.

The storm killed five people, including three children, and injured more than two dozen in Woodward, a town about 140 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. But it was the only tornado that caused fatalities. Many of the touchdowns raked harmlessly across isolated stretches of rural Kansas, and though communities there and in Iowa were hit, residents and officials credited days of urgent warnings from forecasters for saving lives.


"It scared the hell out of me," Tomlyanobich said.

And THAT is what GOD desires!  To scare the HELL outta folks and draw them to Himself, so they dont go to hell.
True 5 died in ONE tornado, but the radio and TV hype of that storm system was FAR FAR overdone to stampede the sheepl.
Here's a BBC article

Tornadoes kill 5 in US Midwest
Tornadoes have hit a large swathe of the US Midwest, killing at least five people in Oklahoma, officials say.
Twisters were also reported in Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska as the storm front swept east.
The deaths occurred before dawn in the town of Woodward, Oklahoma, after warning sirens failed to sound, officials said.

A tornado there caused extensive damage, mainly in the west of the town. At least 29 people were injured.
The National Weather Service had forecast further tornadoes early Sunday morning, with concern they could strike as people slept.
Officials feared people would not hear warnings as they slept and said that it was more difficult for weather spotters to track the funnel clouds overnight.
