NWS: Risk of severe weather for tonight

Tornado Watch for Liberty County effective until 11 p.m

The rest of the area is under of tornado watch until 6 p.m.

We got some feedback from you, asking why the National Weather Service issues warnings, when we don't see a tornado? Small hail and brief funnel clouds will be possible, as well as frequent cloud-to-ground lightning with the stronger storms. At least six homes were damaged, with the damage ranging from minor to severe, the Sheriff's Office said. The chance for more showers and thunderstorms will develop Thursday afternoon.

The forecast says some of the storms will likely become severe, especially during the afternoon and into the evening.

The band of thunderstorms over north Florida prompted several severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings Wednesday morning.

In addition to the severe threat, flash flood watches continue from Georgia to southwest Virginia Wednesday, including the Atlanta, Columbia, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham metro areas.

Tornado warnings are issued when Doppler radar indicates strong rotation within a thunderstorm, or trained storm spotters have reported seeing a funnel cloud or a fully-formed tornado.

A state of emergency is in effect in a small town in eastern North Carolina after a tornado with winds of 110 miles per hour damaged a fire station and several mobile homes. The agency has received several reports of down trees and power lines, but so far no injuries have been reported.
