A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for parts of Rhode Island.
This warning has been issued because dangerous thunderstorms are producing damaging winds over 58 MPH and/or hail of at least one inch in diameter.
Our Early Warning Weather Team is providing live radar coverage of the storm on-air and online – if your neighborhood is in a Severe Thunderstorm Warning, seek shelter inside, away from windows. Though lightning is not a factor in the issuance of Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, lightning poses a deadly threat - if you can hear thunder, you likely are close enough to be at risk and should shelter inside until the storm passes.
Keep in mind that even non-severe thunderstorms can produce strong winds, small hail, dangerous lightning, and heavy rain.
As always, your necn Early Warning Weather Team will continue to provide radar analysis, street-level forecasts, critical information to save life and property, and suggested actions through our continuing coverage. In addition to our live coverage, you can stay up-to-date with the latest weather information via www.necn.com’s weather page, and our necn Mobile App.
