More death storms

Holy crap, the national weather service mentioned the development I live in!

* AT 1048 PM EDT… NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DAMAGING WINDS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH. THIS STORM WAS LOCATED NEAR TWIN RIVERS… OR ABOUT 11 MILES EAST OF TRENTON… AND MOVING EAST AT 30 MPH.

And they didn’t issue the warning until 10:51, which didn’t arrive in my inbox ’til 10:52. Thanks for telling me what I could already hear 4 minutes ago, NWS.

Edit: The storm was so distracting I forgot my point. ‘Twin Rivers’ is awfully specific for a NWS alert, why not mention the town that Twin Rivers is in? As much as TR likes to think otherwise, they’re still just a development inside a larger town 😛
