Large hail and damaging winds, along with possible tornadoes… across a very large area of the United States.

Multiple states need to be aware…… Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan Wisconsin, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, New York State, Pennsylvania … be ready!

Strangely, the National Weather Service is “remiss” at issuing watches / warnings across the Midwest for this clearly VERY strong storm system.

Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, Georgia… all should be under “watch” at least.

The areas currently with storm activity, SHOULD be under warnings, AND watches.  Instead, we see nothing on multiple system feeds.

This lack of putting out notices by the NWS is not good for people who depend on “apps” and email alerts triggered when a watch/warning is issued.
