Death Cloud

June 1st, 2006 5 comments

The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for NJ tonight. The last paragraph of the warning is:

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 NUMBER ONE KILLERS. REMEMBER… IF YOU CAN HEAR THUNDER… YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.

Wow. That’s not scary at all. When did the NWS get so dramatic?
