extending from 11 miles east of Parrottsville to Newport to near

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Tornado Watch remains in effect for the warned area. Although a
tornado is not immediately likely... if one is spotted... act quickly
and move to a place of safety in a sturdy structure... such as a
basement or small interior room.

Severe thunderstorms produce damaging winds... destructive hail...
deadly lightning and very heavy rain. For your protection move to an
interior room on the lowest floor of your home or business. Heavy
rains flood roads quickly so do not drive into areas where water
covers the Road.

If you are in the path of these storms... prepare immediately for
large hail and damaging winds. People outside should move to a
shelter... preferably inside a strong building and away from windows.

In addition to large hail and damaging winds... continuous cloud to
ground lightning is occurring with this storm. Move indoors
immediately! Lightning is one of natures leading killers. Remember...
if you can hear thunder... you are close enough to be struck by
lightning.


A Tornado Watch remains in effect until 200 am EDT Monday morning for
southwestern Virginia and central Tennessee.A Tornado Watch also
remains in effect until 200 am EDT Monday morning for southwestern
Virginia... central Tennessee and southwestern North Carolina.
