Millions Brace for Tornadoes
Predicted Across Plains States

NBC News, by Elisha Fieldstadt and Tom Costello

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 4/26/2014 10:39:28 AM

The uneasy calm of an unusually quiet tornado season faces disruption this weekend on the American Plains, with 32 million people in the danger zone. Tornadoes and thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds are likely to descend on a thousand-mile stretch from north Texas to South Dakota on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. (Snip) The start of the 2014 tornado season has been the quietest since 1953 — thanks to lingering cold from a brutal winter — but as temperatures warm, more stormy weather is likely across the country. This is the only recorded tornado season that hasn't been plagued by

Liberals are practically begging Mother Nature for some severe weather.

Didn´t they predict the worst hurricane season ever a year or two ago, and then we had the mildest season ever? Yeah, I´m shaking in my boots over this "prediction"!

They need a new deck of tarot cards.

They have gotten pretty good at predicting bad storm clusters here on the plains. Yes there will be storms, someone will get hit. We won´t all get hit. Those of us who live in the path of storms appreciate the advance knowledge when a breakout will happen. I am sorry some see this as an opportunity to rant about their pet political peeves.

Looks to me like this has been based on a front that passed through California yesterday and is right now passing Phoenix with strong winds and not an awful lot of precip. Skies are dark and full of dust at the moment in Arizona. A few days ago it was 97 here in Tempe but today will struggle to reach 75. Keeping a close eye on the weather locally.

While I certainly appreciate advanced warnings, I find it oddly congruent that all the forecasts for cities in the threatened corridor have only about a 40-50% chance of severe storms; meanwhile, on the same NOAA page, they´re really hyping the bad weather possibilities. Seems like if they were sure it was going to be so bad they´d be a little more . . . . er . . . . I dunno . . . . consistent, maybe?

Living in tornado alley I appreciate the "head´s up". Locally they are predicting we will escape a "high end event" but isolated severe storms are still possible. They closed with the caution "stay weather aware".

Because this article is from NBC news I´m not labeling it liberal bias begging Mother Nature for severe weather. I´m reading it as a reality to share with others that do not live "in the plains" that those who do pay attention to the weather news and have a plan for safety. No one thinks millions will die but millions are aware.

We don´t obsess, but I like keeping up with what´s happening when bad weather is in our vicinity.

Got new batteries in my battery operated candles, lantern, flashlights and weather band radio - tuned in and alert is set. May we all take proper precautions and, if the bad weather does come, may God bless and protect all in harm´s way.

Amen, #8. Prepare for the worst, but don´t get hysterical. A violent thunderstorm can turn into a tornado without much warning. And to all of you in the path of potential harm, stay safe and well.

I use WeatherStreet. Their map currently shows only Arkansas with very high probability. Of course the zone overlaps into surrounding states.

Don´t count on that. Tornados are free spirits and the next big one might be a thousand miles from there.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has now controlled much of Iraq for over a month. The group has been prolific in its abuses even during this brief reign of cruelty: In recent weeks it´s crucified its opponents in Syria, executed scores of police officers in northern Iraq, threatened archaeological sites, and even destroyed hookah tobacco. This over-the-top brutality is a reflection of ISIS founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, once one of the world´s most notorious terrorists. As the founder and leader of the ISIS predecessor al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), the Jordanian-born Zarqawi managed to take over vast

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state. The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the latest in a string of recent Warren appearances in red and blue states alike, where Democratic base voters have embraced her fiery message as an envoy to working-class voters frustrated with both Wall Street and the Obama administration. “Our job is to fight

A 19-month-old boy was attacked by a pit bull in a parking lot in Commerce City, Colo., police said. Investigators said the 90-pound dog was tethered to a pole when the attack happened around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. They said the boy was trying to give the dog a hug when it mauled his neck and face. "The child went to give the dog a hug, and it latched onto his face," Commerce City police spokesman Chris Dickey told the Denver Post. The child suffered severe facial injuries, but was expected to survive. Police said the dog's owner is a transient who was present at the time of the attack.

Washington – Yet more Democrats are piling on President Barack Obama for skipping a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border during his recent trip to Texas. "I wish he would have come to the border,´ said U.S. Rep. Beto O´Rourke, a Texas Democrat on CNN´s State of the Union with Candy Crowley. "It would have sent an important message to the rest of the country about how seriously he takes this issue beyond the spending request he sent to Congress last week." Obama´s decision to skip the border comes as more and more unaccompanied immigrant minors are making their way in

Goma (DR Congo) - Goma, a city in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, sits by one of the world´s largest freshwater reservoirs and has some of Africa´s heaviest annual rainfall, yet it is a thirsty place. Most of the city´s one million residents, living close to the shores of Lake Kivu, have to struggle every day to fetch water home. From daybreak, an endless stream of cyclists heads to the lake and back, filling battered containers with as much water as they can carry. In a makeshift shelter, health worker Fedeline Kabuhu tries to ensure that no container leaves without

The commander-in-chief will be beach bummin’ it in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass, this summer, and the home he is reportedly renting out looks amazing. President Obama and the first lady are planning a two-week vacation at a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in Chilmark, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reports. The first family will travel to the island from Aug. 9 to Aug. 24, making the 15-day getaway the longest summer vacation of Obama’s presidency. While the location of their vacation home was supposed to be under wraps, neighbors confirmed to the local newspaper that the Obamas will be staying at a luxurious home

Harare, Zimbabwe — President Robert Mugabe’s statement early this month that whites will no longer be allowed to own land in Zimbabwe, and that any white farmers still left will be kicked out, raised eyebrows at home and abroad. Now those comments by the long-ruling autocrat are bringing a backlash in Zimbabwe’s beleaguered trade and tourism ministries. One Harare business newspaper calls them “not just racist but also unconstitutional, retrogressive, and detrimental.” As the Monitor reported July 3, Mr. Mugabe visited a small farming community 120 miles from the capital Harare that was handing out land permits. He then said

Notices warning employees of the expected closing will go out to the casino´s 1,000-plus employees Monday.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Capping off a months-long lobbying effort, Cleveland has been selected to host of the 2016 Republican National Convention. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced Cleveland as the GOP´s recommended location on Fox News Channel in a live, on-air interview. The broadcast of the interview was immediately preceded by a tweet, which has since been deleted, from a spokesman for the Republican Governors Association. "We´re excited about bringing the convention to Cleveland in Ohio, and we´re excited about the decision. We think it´s a smart decision," Priebus said.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.
