This morning, I noticed that the National Weather Service in Paducah, KY, posted that a 3.5 magnitude earthquake occurred at 8:45 AM this morning 2.3 miles east of Point Pleasant, MO or 29.2 miles south of Sikeston, MO.
This summer has been unlike any summer I can remember. Usually, by August, it's really hot and everything is dead. This year though, the Ohio River Valley is more like the Amazon rainforest. I don't even water my plants! (Ha, like I actually ever watered my plants before...)
A very warm and humid southwest wind flow will provide fuel for more thunderstorms today. The primary hazards will be flooding and locally damaging winds. A weak cold front will move south across our region tonight and early Saturday, bringing more storms...
We have been slammed with severe weather lately. In fact, the entire Midwest is on high alert. The National Weather Service has put together an info guide to help keep you and your family safe. Take a look! #summersafety
