STORM WARNING TOMORROW FOR TODD COUNTY. Here is what we are hearing from a briefing today with the National Weather Service: Expect heavy storms, starting after midnight, which could produce some hail. There should be a break through the morning then as early as noon Friday there could be"violent storms and strong, long tracked tornadoes ... expected across the region." For Todd County the worst should be here between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., but the weather service said there could be storms in the area until 6 p.m. The large storms could produce multiple tornadoes, high winds, hail, a large amount of lightening and even some flooding for some areas. This is the most serious warning Todd County has had in years and is similar to the storm system that produced a tornado that hit north Todd County in 2006 destroying homes and a church. One weather official from Christian County told the weather spotters there, "This is one of the most dangerous situations I have seen in some time and I strongly urge everyone to begin preparations now." According to Todd County School Superintendent Mike Kenner there will be a decision made about when students are released tomorrow. Friday is an early-release day. So take precautions and keep your weather radios (or TV until the power goes out) close. Be safe!
