We would like to hear of any significant weather phenomena that you observe, though we are particularly interested in receiving timely reports of tornadoes, one inch (quarter-sized) and larger hail, wind gusts of 58 mph or more, and flash flooding.

For life-threatening and imminent severe weather threats, please contact local law enforcement immediately (even if you also contact us by social media or email) and ask that they relay your report to the National Weather Service
