Hazardous Weather Outlook Issued for Tuesday, June 12
So far this summer has been non-stop raining. I pretty much didn't sleep last night because of all the thunder and lightening. Go to bed, Mother Nature! This morning looks pretty gloomy out and I hear more thunder in the distance. So, there's a hazardous weather outlook. But the main concern isn't tornadoes this time. It's flooding, hail, and lightening!
