National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for Montgomery County until 4 p.m. today.
Storms have formed west of the county and some of the storms are reaching severe levels, according to an NWS news release. Atmospheric conditions are favorable for tornadic development in some of these storms and storms associated with this system produced a tornado, NWS said.
NWS offered some tips if a tornado does hit:
- Know your safe room in your home, at school, and at work.
- If driving and a tornado is spotted, leave your car immediately and move to shelter or a low lying area.
- Do not use highway overpasses as shelters. Remain alert for the issuance of warnings.
