The National Weather Service issues warnings for many types of severe weather. Our equipment and tools help us anticipate and warn for situations that threaten life and/or property. However, the only way we know a severe event occurred is by human or "ground truth" reports. These reports not only tell us what happened, but could help us anticipate future events. Please call us toll-free at 1-800-267-8101 if you observe any of the following:

  • Tornado
  • One inch diameter hail is "Severe" hail. We would like to receive reports of hail of any size - report the size of the largest hailstone
  • Wind Damage (structural damage or trees/power lines down)
  • Stream flooding, street flooding, or streams approaching bankfull
  • Snowfall of 3 inches or more
  • Ice damage (broken tree limbs or slick roads)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are a trained Skywarn spotter, please use the toll-free number given to you at your training session.

  • When - Start time and, if possible, duration of event.
