Tornado Watch Continues til 11pm

Tornado Watch Continues til 11pm

The watch, meteorologist Scott Minnick said, would last until about 1 p.m., noting that the storm has moved into the region later than initially forecast.

Both tornadoes were rated EF-0, the weakest type, with wind speeds of 60 to 70 miles per hour, radio station WTOP reported. "And you can't rule out the possibility of a couple tornados". Spotters provide the Weather Service reports about tornadic activity, hail, wind damage and flooding.

The tornado is the 21st in Arkansas this year, the weather service said.

Civil rights groups alarmed over retreat on police reforms
In New Orleans, the man appointed to oversee the reforms of that city's police department said the agreement there still stands. Would Baltimore be in a position to be able to afford a consent decree?

The weather service said that further surveys of the damage caused by Thursday's storms will be conducted Friday.

Winton said residents should be aware that the winds could potentially knock down trees and power lines.

Wind advisories are in effect Friday across much of North and SC, a day after storms moved through the area. As temperatures drop at the higher elevations, rain will change to snow, according to the NWS. "It will also require the NWS to be more forthcoming about the number of vacant positions in the NWS", said the National Weather Service Employees Organization, which pushed for inclusion of the language.

Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman 'amenable' to trade to New England Patriots
That fit at least has to be considered (as does the on-field fit, as Sherman has typically played in a zone system in Seattle). Secondly, there were a couple of occasions with Seattle when Sherman grew angry with the coaching staff and yelled at coaches.

Authorities in Johnston, South Carolina, a town of 2,300 that calls itself The Peach Capital of The World, reported a possible tornado there damaged about a dozen buildings. And due to strong gusty winds, blowing and drifting snow is possible.

Friday looks to be the coolest day, as high temps will be in the upper 60's as the center of the High passes just to our north.

Australian towns evacuated amid flooding from ex-cyclone
Six large rivers had reached major flood levels and were still rising in several areas, said the Bureau of Meteorology. Cars sit submerged after heavy rain associated with Cyclone Debbie hit the Gold Coast suburb of Robina in Queensland .
