April severe weather continues

Apr 14, 2012

A powerful upper level storm system is set to move through North Texas late tonight through tomorrow. As always, KETR is poised to deliver up-to-the-minute information, as the situation may warrant.

The storm is predicted to affect an area generally from Oklahoma through Nebraska, but will likely move into North Texas after midnight, according to the National Weather Service. Increased storm chances continue through the day Sunday.

Some storms could be severe with large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes.

This on the heels of a storm April 3rd that managed to produce no less than 17 confirmed twisters in North Texas. Harrowing images from those storms help to illustrate the necessity for KETR's attention if storms begin to affect portions of our listening area.

At any rate, Northeast Texas is now well within "Severe Weather Season." If you haven't already purchased a battery operated radio (or perhaps a hand-crank battery-free model like these) please consider this easy step that could keep you informed of vital up-to-the-minute severe weather information.
