THIS IS A PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION!

SIGNIFICANT WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CAN
PRODUCE SWATHS OF WIDESPREAD DESTRUCTION...WITH WIND SPEEDS OFTEN IN EXCESS OF
85 MPH. WHILE SOME LARGE HAIL MAY ALSO OCCUR...THE PRIMARY CONCERN IS THE
LIKELIHOOD OF VERY DESTRUCTIVE DAMAGING WINDS. IF YOU LIVE IN THE GREATEST RISK
AREA...YOU ARE STRONGLY URGED TO REVIEW BASIC SEVERE THUNDERSTORM SAFETY
RULES...AND HAVE A PLAN OF SAFE ACTION DEVELOPED AND READY TO USE IF NECESSARY.
STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS ARE ALSO MONITORING THIS DEVELOPING SITUATION. BE
SURE TO REMAIN ALERT FOR LATER STATEMENTS...AND POSSIBLE WATCH OR WARNING
ISSUANCES.
