And that's all -- saying -- McCrory is on the line with us he's from TV and weather dot com he's the storm chaser.
It is it your sense Connor that that the lower level winds are just are not strong enough and and that might give us a break this afternoon.
I don't think that's quite safe to say our low level -- fertilized here in place today backed.
I think it's papers say that a little bit more here in place today than there was on the -- of the more tornados back on May twentieth.
And so I don't want to alarm anyone you never know and that was certainly destructive -- -- -- -- populated areas but conditions are definitely there today for political.
In order that it K -- H was reporting that as this storm is headed east right.
Yes but -- and and as it gets farther east the lower level winds are stronger which would be a better environment for tornadic activity right.
-- -- -- and do we have a sense for whether this thing is getting stronger or weakening or or any or making any changes.
As the afternoon goes god is certainly seems like these storms are getting more intense and that's what we often see of their movies and the federal and -- -- moisture.
Everything is really there today didn't it wouldn't surprise -- all of these storms continue to intensify over the next several hours into the evening.
Our our our ability to watch these things gets better every year every may comes along in their we have more tools for watching -- now.
Twitter and FaceBook and minister Graham and every kind of way to disseminate this information and it makes you feel like.
It's worse than it was in years past but it does that deceptive.
Absolutely there's so much information available as sort of the tornado -- and so that's -- Everyone's got pictures other videos of it and that makes it seem like.
So people nowadays think that tornadoes are hitting more and more they're really not.
But we're hearing about it -- -- that's deceptive it's kind of a good thing because we're starting to pay attention -- little -- I think.
What I've I've felt like that was that a large part of the the reason for the success of the warnings and in more last week people watch this storm forming in the local stations are in the in the weather on the on the phone is going.
It's headed your way go to ground and people did.
Absolutely driving up 35 all -- in striving for more than they had a tornado or you know -- -- approaching.
All I thought always just be all everyone -- -- -- amassed.
-- -- Vehicle than people moving itself -- get out of the way of the tornado.
Everyone knew was coming unfortunately you know quite a few people -- still -- but it could have been much worse.
Yet the time of day was it just in to the time they could have been worse for the little kids in those schools where they didn't have have shelters in the rest compared to try to get -- and pick them up and you know that all all of that was mighty said an end and you know there's still there's still mourning -- but.
-- many people got out of the way it -- where in years past that would have been possible I wonder if ten years earlier without social media without all the warnings that we have now.
If if things wouldn't be dramatically different Connor.
I think there would be you know and the seventies and what's off all the tornado moved through that city and -- many people who were in their vehicles trying to escape.
And that's why we still don't recommend and most scenarios that people I don't want them or I don't but there are -- as.
Typically -- does take a lot of traffic or something like that but it's being -- nowadays.
With all the information that's available on technology and ability to communicate so quickly worked hard -- be able to help.
-- people even though we haven't quite increase our tornado warning lead times but what we'd like.
The information -- better.
