Tornado Watch vs. Tornado Warning

The word “Tornado” invokes fear in most of us. Just this week the National Weather Service issued a Tornado Watch for multiple Hudson Valley counties, including Dutchess and Ulster counties.

It is important to understand the difference between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning.

A watch indicates tornados are possible and near the watch area. In the event of a watch, discuss emergency plans, and make sure you have supplies prepared and a safe room in mind.

A warning indicates a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. According to the Red Cross, “Tornado warnings indicate imminent danger to life and property. Go immediately under ground to a basement, storm cellar or an interior room (closet, hallway or bathroom).”
