    Great links, backpack. Also, check out the College of DuPage Meteorology
    Severe Weather and Flash Flood Warnings

    Ha! Thanks for asking about Georgia! She did NOT handle it well. Even small thunder is reason for her to sound the alarm. We think in her mind that a giant is attacking the house so she's trying to tell the giant to go away.

    The disturbing thing about the storms is the cable or internet can go out easily and then you're stuck with just a weather radio spewing the same "warning" over and over again. This last time it was quiet so we never did gather in the closet but for a while we thought that maybe quiet was a bad sign.

    Oklahoma was was hit with them too. They had an EF-3 touchdown.

    The National Weather Service has confirmed there were at least 9 tornadoes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Tues night. They're still surveying 3 other cities to see if it was tornadoes or straight line winds that hit them.

    More accurate than tv channels, which break for commercials, are weather websites.

    Below are some links

    Intellicast
    Use mouse/stylus/touch to move to your area.

    Click on the second icon which looks like a circle to locate the location and direction of the storm cell(s). The darker the color, the more severe.

    Intellicast - Weather Active Map


    Weatherunderground radar (they also have data on rivers / streams on their satellite page)

    Current Nashville NEXRAD Radar Map : Weather Underground


    Accuweather radar

    AccuWeather.com - Weather Radar | Southeast Regional Weather Radar



    The Nashville area is used in all examples because there are storms there and each website shows storms aand tornadoes differently.
