    Southern Nv here...severe heat advisory in effect today, not particularly unusual for us June thru September, but nonetheless can be draining as you carry on. Humidity is currently 14% which is better for my complexion than 4%, still drying though.

    My heart goes out to all of you enduring this recent spate of storms & their aftermath; I would, however, be amenable to borrowing an overcast sky or two, just for the shade...LOL

    This gives Oklahoma the record for EF5's. This is crazy that they would have 2 EF5's in a month.

    A National Weather Service official said preliminary EF5 ratings of Friday’s tornado in El Reno have not been verified by storm damage on the ground.

    “I think that rating needs to be reviewed a little more,” said Greg Carbin, weather service warning coordinator, in an online news conference sponsored by the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes.

    On Wednesday, radar wind speed indicators of more than 295 mph were used to give the storm the rare EF5 rating, the rarest and most destructive tornado on the rating system.

    But Carbin said that rating was preliminary and no on-ground damage has been found that would indicate the storm was greater than a EF3.

    Did the meteorologist tell people to use the drainage tunnel? I remember them saying to use a ditch or low lying area, but avoid highway underpasses.

    Weird they took shelter in the drainage tunnel out in the open.

    That area of the USA really needs some storm shelters!

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.
    http://www.weather.com/news/tornado-torcon-index

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    Wellll.....

    According to this little radar snap, some of us are in a tornado watch box:



    ...although there is no mention of a watch on any local station, and only one station even mentions rain for today. (The sky tells me rain is a definite possibility). It IS nice and cool today, yay! We DO need the rain, as the ground is cracking in some spots.

    Anyhoo...folks please delve a little deeper into your lazy local Sunday weather news just in case you are subject to some bad stuff today!!!
