    OUAC Weather Reports

    I thought I would start a thread for reporting our weather conditions. I'll start by saying we were having some strong thunderstorms going on this afternoon/evening in Chicago.

    Tropical Depression #3 forms in the Gulf


    Tropical Depression #3 has just formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico and is forecast to strengthen into Tropical Storm Colin as early as today.

    The National Hurricane Center has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for parts of Florida's west coast from Indian Pass to Englewood, Florida.

    The storm is expected to move north northeast across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and towards Florida's west coast.

    The Chicago area could see golf-ball-or-larger sized hail, winds up to 80 miles an hour, tornadoes and torrential downpours Wednesday afternoon as a storm moves through the area.

    "We're asking for people to have a way to receive severe weather warnings this afternoon, have a plan in place to take shelter away from windows, a sturdy building," National Weather Service Meteorologist Jamie Enderlen said. "An interior room, maximize the number of walls between you and the outside and minimize the number of windows."

    The winds could produce damage comparable to a low-end tornado, Enderlen said, and the storm could produce 2-inch hail. At that size, it's damaging to cars and glass. They're expected to arrive in McHenry County close to 4 or 5 p.m. and move into Chicago later.

    Me too I heard on MSNBC this morning when I here Kankakee County where I live Bill Kerans/meterologist said said that is the bullseye for tornados today we live in the country with only fields around us. I have been upset ever since. It is dark out here already but my Hubby turned on the weather radio and it will happened later on today. Please say a prayer for us!!

    Praying for you and your family, being in an open area is very scary. We are supposed to have golf size hail, 80 mile per hour winds, torrential rain etc in the city, please say a prayer for me too! Thank you! It is starting to get dark here, ComEd (electric) is talking on the news now, I am scared now too. I am on the 3rd floor of an apt building, roof right above me, going to go in my apt hallway away from windows if it gets real bad.

    It is raining now in the city, but the BIG storm is suppose to be later on this afternoon. No thunder or lightening yet.

    Rain has stopped, the sun is shining bright here, calm before the storm. I remember that tornado too last year.

    Back in late 60's we had back to back tornados here we lived on the west side and we got nothing but now we live in the country where it not protected well. The sun is coming out here too now and very humid outside because of all the rain. Stay Safe my friend!!

    The sky is getting dark now so I know the storms are on their way now. My phone just went off with a tornado watch for my area.

    I was just watching this on the news as we were eating dinner . I *think* I am far enough north so that we'll be missed, but the clouds are darkening right now and looks like we might get some rain.

    Mkm, stay safe !

    According to the news it won't be here for another 3 hours? I think before that.

    10 Ways To Protect Yourself During a Tornado Alert


    1. Create a plan ahead of time where your family will seek shelter when a tornado warning is issued.

    2. If you are living in a high-rise building, you do not have to get into a basement if there is limited time before the tornado reaches your location. Identify a small interior room in order to maximize the number of walls and minimize the number of windows between you and the outside.

    3. Get under a heavy table or work bench if a small interior room is not available to you

    4. Go underneath a stairwell if there are no other safe options. The stairwell provides stability and concrete walls as protection.

    5. Avoid long corridors with windows and large openings. If the walls and roof are taken out by extreme winds, it will collapse and the broken glass will fly down the corridors.

    6. Do not open windows as it will give wind a way into the building.

    7. If you are in a location with a lot of glass, find something, whether a piece of clothing or firm object to cover your head.

    8. Crouch as low as possible to avoid debris from hitting you.

    9. Bring a flashlight in case the power goes out.

    10. Do not rely on sirens. They are directed to those outdoors and if the wind is blowing in the opposite direction, the sound waves won’t get to you. A weather radio can notify you in the event of a tornado as well as wireless emergency alerts on your phone. Having multiple ways to get warnings is helpful in case power is lost.


    According to meteorologist Jamie Enderlen at the NWS Chicago, there are 13 minutes between when the NWS issues a warning and when a tornado hits. Execute your plan into action immediately and seek safety as soon as a warning is issued.
