March 2012 tornado coverage

March 3, 2013

Traditional severe weather season expected

March, April and May remain the hot months for tornadic activity



“Taking the generalities in that, you’d say we’re probably going to have closer to a typical severe weather season, which hasn’t been typical around here in recent years,” Sullivan said. 

Weather experts may not be able to tell you if a tornado will strike in Floyd or Clark counties a month from now, but when a threat for severe weather is discovered, their forecasts could save your life. 

If severe weather is predicted for a specific area, people shouldn’t just wait to hear a tornado siren or listen to their weather radios, he said. 

“The best way to find out if you’re in danger is to watch the television stations or get online so you can see the path [of the storm] and where it’s headed,” Sullivan said.
