...Reporting Severe Weather to the National Weather Service...

Severe thunderstorm watches and tornado watches are issued by the
Storm Prediction Center, when atmospheric conditions are
favorable for the development of severe weather or tornadoes.
Severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings are issued by
your Shreveport National Weather Service Forecast Office, when
severe thunderstorms or tornadoes are imminent, either as
indicated by doppler radar, or when observed and reported by
reliable sources such as skywarn spotters.

Your local National Weather Service Office is interested in your
severe weather reports. We want you to let us know anytime you
observe tornadoes, large hail, strong winds, flash flooding or any
weather related damage.

The Shreveport office covers 21 counties in Eastern Texas, 1
county in Southeastern Oklahoma, 9 counties in Southwestern
Arkansas and 17 parishes in North and Central Louisiana. You can
report severe weather for these counties and parishes in a number
of ways.

You can submit a storm report on the homepage of the National
Weather Service Shreveport.

Call your county or parish sheriff office and relay your report
to them.

We will need to know the type of severe weather observed, the
location, and the time it occurred.
