Tropical storm “Debby” has formed in the gulf of mexico… several storm tracks have it pulling WNW towards Houston to Austin…. tropical storm warnings for landfall have already been issued for New Orleans Louisiana, and the adjacent nearby areas along the coast.
We are seeing damaging winds, hail, and possible tornadoes detected throughout Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The east coast storms in SC and NC will pull WNW with the counter clockwise rotation of this tropical storm.
Watch all the gulf coast states for damaging winds, possible hail and brief tornadoes — flooding rain as well… this means.. South Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
Also watch the severe weather (damaging winds and hail) at the Missouri / Iowa border.. heading ESE towards central Illinois.. just east of Saint Louis Missouri eventually.
In the Southwest USA — at the Arizona / New Mexico / Mexico border regions.. we are seeing hail and damaging winds break out … heading WSW and ENE in a slight rotation.
In the far pacific northwest.. Washington State, Oregon, British Columbia — we are seeing damaging winds, and hail detected .. also warnings / watches issued by the Canadian weather service for much of BC extending SE towards Calgary…… this is associated with a storm that has a center still out over the pacific .. just west of Seattle currently … counterclockwise rotating as well.. the whole storm is heading ESE towards Oregon and North California…. Eventually this off the west coast will push eastwards after pulling south a bit more…. which will bring severe weather out west.. then into the southwest US states of AZ , NM , TX.
Have a severe weather plan ready just in case you ever come across a severe weather outbreak in your particular area. shelter, food, water, communications, transportation, survival supplies (the basics)… all are needed for several scenarios.. whether it is severe weather, earthquakes, civil unrest, power outages etc..
Don’t be scared.. be prepared !
