Severe storm warning for Harris and surrounding counties. Yikes.

Any word of automotive plants with damage? I'm impatient! And I don't think she's going to call because it's not her direct account.

The only auto plant I remember being in Arlington is the GM plant -- the hardest hit area was south-west of it.

Here is the storm map from yesterday's storm. Http://www.srh.noaa.gov/fwd/?n=april32012sum

For those concerned about friends/family you shoul be able to determine if they were located near the tornados.

Should've mentioned auto supplier. My co-worker heard from someone and I guess they're all ok.

A long-exposure shot of lightning striking the Bay Bridge last night. Glad no one was on it!

That's an awesome picture, but it probably happens all the time. Just like they say planes get struck all the time. Creepy!

Anyone on anyone in Oklahoma?

I had TV on in the background when they touched upon this too, and I think they mentioned last time they there was a severe alert this far in advance was in '06 when there was an outbreak of 100 tornadoes? I hope I heard that wrong/I hope it doesn't end up being too bad.

We had some stuff here last night. A few tornadoes in the Norman area (about 45 mins from me) and in SW Oklahoma. About the worst of it for me was the heavy rain. Got to go clean out the gutters of my house between storms because they were so filled with debris from trees. Otherwise, no problems here.

Apparently funnel clouds were spotted just a few miles west of UIUC. My brother is safe in the dorms, although he said sirens are going off right now. I had to laugh because I remember being deafened during tornado siren tests--the sirens are located right on top of one of the dorms!

Tropical Storm Alberto is running along the southeast coast near Charleston, SC. Tropical season usually starts on June 30. This really is a bizarre weather year.

Not severe, but since the weather has been nice in Michigan for so long, I have to keep reminding myself what month it is. Usually people wait to plant their annuals and things until Memorial Day weekend to be safe from occasional night time freezes but this year, people have everything planted. Everybody except me, that is. I just haven't had time!

Posting again because Tropical Storm Beryl is affecting Florida now. I guess I was wrong about tropical weather season because they just said on The Weather Channel that it starts June 1st. However, it is very, very rare to have two by this time of year already. Looks like my dad in Ocala could get quite a bit of rain. Pretty crazy though!

I live in Jacksonville and we're getting pounded by rain right now and some serious wind gusts that are coming in with the bands. We need the rain because we're in a drought, but we don't need 10 inches in 24 hours - street flooding here we come!

T.S. Debby

Apparently Florida - which doesn't need the rain - is getting 3 - 6 inches of rain now. We could really use it - but no one seems to be able to predict what the storm will do next.
