Howdy- i just want to say that i am highly dissapointed that a high risk of severe storms was not issued bye the spc yesterday (i live in arkansas but i have several friends in ky thats why i am writting) i mean heres what there 3:30 pm outlook looked like: SPC AC 182021

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK CORR 1
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0321 PM CDT THU OCT 18 2007

VALID 182000Z - 191200Z

...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF SRN LOWER
MI...IND...WRN OH...ERN AND SRN IL...WRN KY...SE MO...WRN TN AND FAR
NE AR...

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE GREAT
LAKES...OH VALLEY...TN VALLEY AND CNTRL GULF COAST STATES...

CORRECTED FOR WORDING TN VALLEY SECTION

...SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK IS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING
ACROSS PARTS OF THE SRN GREAT LAKES...LOWER OH VALLEY...MID-MS
VALLEY AND TN VALLEY...

i mean when they say outbreak- that should be interpreted as a high risk situation.

We did have enough warning, I recieved a call , warning us that the storms were bad and the sirens wer going off too. I don't know what else they could have done but come door to door. I think they did more than enough to take care of us in Hopkins County. WE DID HAVE AMPLE TIME TO PROTECT OUR FAMILIES!!!

im not doubting about the warning time margret- im talking about the convective outlook where the storm prediction center could have issued a high risk for severe storms instead of leaving it at just moderate risk but im glad that you made it threw last nigh-i had my spies out there confirming tornados and told my spies to call it in to locals- but like i said- to all that read this- just be safe- take care God bless- and have a good evening
