Last county in Mississippi shaded in green in the NE sector. Its pretty wet. I just hope the red doesn’t move over here and goes NE of here. In the past Arkansas is just a day’s notice of what we are going to get.
Hopefully this won’t escalate to a PDDS (pretty darn dangerous situation).
Weather Channel is APOPLECTIC nothing much has happened.
If I was cynical I would think they WANTED problems so they could push the man made global warming/climate change agenda.
Lets hope they get a break and a WWA occurs. (Weatherman Wrong Again)
A somewhat more readable version:

Why do weather services persist in pretending we still live in the age of the Teletype?
There’s a storm southeast of Dallas right now that looks worse than those in Arkansas.
There are reports from spotters that there are multiple large tornadoes on the ground between Nevada, MO and Joplin, MO. Scary.
My prayers go out to the people of Arkansas and everyone affecting by this weather....
So far a big nothing here in southwest Arkansas. According to the Weather Channel we should have been destroyed a dozen times over today. I don’t want to be destroyed even once, but the Weather Channel folks are a bit much.
KY3 TV (Springfield MO) website is reporting 2 dead in Quapaw OK
Tornado hits Joplin MO area
Baxter Springs KS has storm damage
White County Police http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/180/web God be with them
Praying for all being impacted by this whole severe weather outbreak and it is not ending tonight sadly....
My sister in law just called from the Vilonia area. They had 10 people who spent about an hour in the storm room. which is tiny. When they came out they found that all the neighbors had been hit, but the tornado skipped around their farm. Three years ago this same area got hit, and their barn was totaled.
Ugly aerial footage of the damage.
I have dear friends who live in the path just south of Villonia, Arkansas. I called and immediately got a busy signal. One witness said everything in that area was destroyed and he could hear screams. Prayers for all the people going through this.
Stay safe guys. I miss living in the area, but sure don’t miss tornado season.
