Dangerously high winds

| April 20, 2011 @ 10:47 pm | 8 Replies



The above radar pictures show a bow echo rotating around a mesoscale vortex.  This is producing winds at radar level (2,000 ft.) of near 75 mph along the Warrior River, so winds at the ground could be 50-60 mph.

Get ready for trees and power lines to go down.  People can be injured, especially in cars and mobile homes.

    so even in a stable built house it wouldn’t be a bad idea to seek shelter in the basement?

    We live in a heavily wooded area filled with pine trees, I’m thinking we’re going to head that way anyway, just to be safe.
