Do You Have A Plan: Tornado Warning

Posted: Updated:
Tornado Warning
A Tornado Warning means that a tornado has either been detected to be forming by Doppler radar, or someone has spotted a tornado, a funnel cloud, or damage characteristic of a tornado has been reported to law enforcement and relayed to the local National Weather Service.

A tornado warning is issued for a short period of time, usually less than one hour and may be issued for only one county or even part of one county. That is the reason why you may not have a tornado when a tornado warning is issued, it may not be issued for your area.
