OVER A LARGE AREA THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL ISSUE EITHER A
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH OR A TORNADO WATCH. DURING A WATCH YOU MAY
CONTINUE WITH NORMAL ACTIVITIES BUT SHOULD PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO
ANY DEVELOPING STORMS IN YOUR AREA... AND YOU SHOULD KNOW WHERE YOUR

CLOSELY... LISTEN FOR WARNINGS... AND MOVE QUICKLY TO SHELTER WHEN
WARRANTED.
