This is a quote from the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Glenn Burns, the chief meteorologist for Channel 2 Action News, said Tuesday evening the “significant tornado parameters” he’s been watching all day Tuesday are “off the scale.”
“When it’s a 1, it means tornadoes are possible. At 3, it means they are likely. Ours is 8 to 11,” Burns said. “All the parameters are there for tornadoes, damaging winds, hail, intense lightning. It very likely we will see some flooding in North Georgia.”
He said people should look for “super cell thunder storms.”
And they should be prepared…..
We frequently lose power in bad storms. Guess we’ll head out first thing tomorrow and stock up with bottled water and easy to prepare foods… and pray that it misses us!
On edit: I’ve checked the radar maps and it looks like the major storms are going to miss us. I bet the comments by the Atlanta weather forecaster were just sensationalized for ratings. I hope. 🙂
