I am happy to report that we did not have many complaints about the Severe Weather Cut-in I had to do last night. Usually we get a few calls from people telling us to put their program back on, but last night we only had one guy call. We actually had people call and thank us!
I wonder why people have had a change of heart? Do you think it is because of the Maramduke disaster last April? Is it because it was for Craighead County? Was it because nobody was watching Extreme Home Makeover? What do you think?
Fortunately, we did not have any touchdowns. Some people did report a funnel cloud South of Highway 230. That is exactly where Storm Vision radar placed it too.
I was extremely pleased with how our equipment performed last night. Storm Vision radar "flagged" the storm for a possible tornado a few minutes before the warning was issued. The radar display system that we use is called ESP :LIVE from Weather Central. It was really put to the test on April 2 for both of the monster F3's. It performed well then, and it performed well last night.
Here is a little montage of the coverage from last night... The first clip is about an hour before the warning.... Click here.
Bring on the cool weather!!!
