Yes, heavy wind/rain in Fenney area. But the tornadoes were miles away.
No where to seek shelter anyway.

As having moved from tornado ally last year, we brought our NOAA weather radio with us. We programmed it for just our local county and works great. It also has battery backup so when the power goes out, you still are up-to-date on weather warning. From what I understand, they detected tornado rotation down by Bushnell heading NE so that is why the warning for Sumpter County. I strongly recommend that everyone get a NOAA weather radio. I think they can be bought at Lowe's for about $35.00

I checked the radar and there were some storms. And I stayed awake for a while just to be aware. But there didn't seem to be any really bad weather in our immediate area.

Anybody else get the warning or witness any really nasty weather?
My phone started at 3:48a and went off a total of 4 times before 4:30a with a tornado WARNING. No watch, straight to the warning. I got up to read the message however decided I needed to get our dog outside before it got worse (it stated it would last until 9a or 10a). I saw it wasn't even for our area after I got back inside however kept getting the alerts. By that time, we were wide awake... didn't go back to sleep! I appreciate the safety feature HOWEVER never seen a WARNING prior to a watch....

I think we went to the Fire Station to sign up for alerts years ago. But then I thought it switched to all phones in the areas affected would ring.

Neither of us heard the phone ring if it did for this Tornado warning or Strong Thunderstorm warning. I sometimes fall asleep with my Sony earphones on and my husband' sleeps so deep it takes a lot to awake him. (clean conscience)
