Do you have a Weather Radio/Alarm?? Usually the NWS gives you several minutes of warning at the minimum. The better radio use "SAME Technology" which lets you tell the radio what counties you want to hear the warnings for (no sense hearing an alarm for a county 50 miles "downstream")
Also - a word of warning: this morning I heard one of the meteorologist on the Weather Channel refer to "discreet supercells" a few times. They do NOT mean "modest/secretive/quiet"....LOL!! A supercell is anything *but* discreet in that sense. Maybe they need to adopt the words "stand-alone" or "monolithic" to describe a storm cell that's not within a line of storms.....
Supposed to hit here tonight and more tomorrow. We were lucky enough to have a neighbor with a huge garage who invited us to stash our new TC in it with his TT. Any time "large hail" is mentioned, I cringe. Now let's hope no tornadoes.
Say a prayer for everyone in the path.

What a wild night. I have lived in KS all my life and never seen anything like it. Two tornadoes went south of McPherson and three went north of town. They took almost the same path. Wichita tornado hit the old Boeing plant (Spirit now)and did a lot of damage. The Wichita tornado took almost the same path as the Andover tornado years ago.
