After the joke of the storm they all predicted today my mom was telling me the other night she (Katie) was on tv telling people that if they were not going to be able to continue to watch "them" (Katie & Co.) that people should sleep in their basement.

Mind you I think we ended up with something but hardly anything life threatening or remotely close.

Did this whack job really tell peeps to sleep in their basement? ROFL

TORNADO GHOST STORIES!!!!!

My main point of tonight’s blog is this: Tornado warnings are supposed to be reserved for tornadoes! If you were watching our coverage of the storms last night, you likely saw me mentioning, or rather stressing the fact that there was no tornado in Johnson County (Kansas) . Don made brief mention of this below. Now, it may seem pretty nit picky to you, but I feel that the vernacular in severe weather warnings is very important. When you start issuing tornado warnings, you should be darn sure that: 1. The threat is real 2. You know what you are talking about, and can back it up 3. You realize that you are elevating the level of panic and anxiety among your viewers. To haphazardly throw out tornado warnings, just because you can, leads you down the path of crying wolf. You may get away with it for quite some time before the people you serve …the viewing public… begin to start questioning your credibility. If you do it enough, people stop listening to you, because they have lost confidence in your ability to tell one type storm from another. So, when another May 4th , F-4 type tornado comes rolling down the pike, and you start screaming tornado, tornado…who will listen, or believe? I take this very seriously, and it is why, last night…when another Kansas City television station made the irresponsible gesture of telling people in Johnson County that a tornado was going to drop out of the sky…I went a little bit ballistic. (I kept it controlled on the air…but I was more than a little ticked underneath) This was clearly NOT a tornado situation. We knew that, and so did the National Weather Service. It was a storm that produced 60 to 80 mph straight line winds…certainly a dangerous storm, and one that scared a lot of folks. But it was not a 250 mph tornado! When you put out a tornado warning…particularly only two years after a major tornado outbreak…the F-4 t is what comes to the minds of many viewers. So why elevate already scared to people to the level of panic? It’s not something I feel comfortable doing, and neither does the rest of the weather team…or anyone else here at FOX4. We want you to understand, that when we say Tornado Warning…we mean it. And we want you to be confident that we can back it up with good science…not hype.

The only way you'll see this trend of "Katastrophy Katie's" end, is if people stop watching.

Alarming the general public for no good reason is nothing more than a ratings / cash grab by the local stations.

It especially irritates me when someone like Bryan Busby gets indignant about people calling in and complaining while he breaks in during an NBA basketball resulting in him "apologizing for doing his job".

What alot of these numb nuts don't realize is that viewers aren't complaining about you "doing your job" necessitating an apology - they're complaining that you're scaring the bejesus out of alot of folks and breaking into programming everytime the sky turns grey. People are sick of it and are beyond taking you seriously at this point.

The pendulum has already begun to swing in the other direction, and when another F4 does hit, folks are going to get hurt because they're assuming that Busby, Horner and Leezak are getting their monthly self aggrandizing, face time in for the week / month.

If the sirens are going off I will go downstairs after I have looked outside of course.

We had the sirens go off 5 times in abotu a 45 min span one day and all it did was get people to go walk outside.

Most people aren't stupid and know when the weather is really bad and when it is just a strong storm.

Then there are those who have Katie fetishes and get scared at the first crack of thunder.

All of these guys are clueless. After the golf ball sized hail we got last night, I am glad our roof/gutters haven't been replaced yet from thr damage that happened in the thunderstorm during the first week of May. That was the same storm that Mike and the NWS both said was also not tornadic, that destroyed homes in Gladstone and NKC. 12 hours later they admitted that it was a tornado.

Which is why a wise person would know that spring\summer in the midwest = thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms= bad weather, hail, lightning, etc.

The midwest is what many for years and years have called "Tornado Alley"

Pet that all together and what do you get? And you didn't even need Katie to tell you!!! :)


so anyone who is either surpirsed by or otherwise shocked by stormy, tornadic weather in KC April-July has a screw loose in the first place.

Secondly anyone who is surprised and or shocked by weather peeps on tv not being right about shit also has a screw loose.

Well...kind of. I'll agree that it's pretty unlikely that you'll get hit by one, but the chances of getting hit by a tornado in Kansas are 12.6 time higher than the chances you'll get hit by lightning by my calculations (in Kansas anyway).

In a quick dig around the internet, you've got about a one in 700,000 chance (http://www.wlextv.com/Global/story.asp?S=1367554) of being struck by lightning in a given year. Kansas averages around 50 tornado injuries each year (http://www.wlextv.com/Global/story.asp?S=1367554), so based on the population of around 2.775 million (http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet/SAFFPopulation?_event=Search&_name=&_state=04000US20&_county=&_cityTown=&_zip=&_sse=on&_lang=en&pctxt=fph), you've got a one in 56,000 chance of being injured by a tornado in a given year.

Not as tiring as that POS and her mugging for the camera every time there's a damn thunderstorm. That's what people are (rightly, IMO) kvetching about. She's worse than the others, but they all pull this crap to one degree or another. As a previous poster noted it's all part of the fear-mongering for ratings that's all to common today.

I'm just happy I had the chance to meet the idiot at Barnes and Noble on the Plaza in the checkout line. We were in the checkout line. I noticed her and told her I was a huge fan. Her expression was priceless when I followed it up with "Sure, Chicken Little was always my favorite book as a kid". The other folks laughed, but she seemed unamused and didn't want to talk anymore.

Speaking of crying wolf, there is nothing better than getting woke up every 30 minutes by the weather radio for thuderstorm watches in Harrisonville or flash flooding in Saint Jo.

The weather radio usually gets shut off quicker than the alarm clock gets snoozed. For the question of "what if", that question got answered in the first week of May, as our neighborhood got hit by a tornado without any sirens or weather radio tornado warnings.

Speaking of crying wolf, there is nothing better than getting woke up every 30 minutes by the weather radio for thuderstorm watches in Harrisonville or flash flooding in Saint Jo.

The weather radio usually gets shut off quicker than the alarm clock gets snoozed. For the question of "what if", that question got answered in the first week of May, as our neighborhood got hit by a tornado without any sirens or weather radio tornado warnings.

I'm not up on what counties Saint Joe and Harrisonville are in but you can program codes into most weather radios so they only activate for a certain county. That way you don't haveta listen to all the other info going out over them.

I can hook you up with your counties SAME number if you need.

What is so ****ing amazing is some of you seem to have trouble understanding that storms in the Spring\Summer in Tornado Alley produce bad weather! That is until someone comes on the TV with 15 radars of the same ****ing thing and repeat themselves more than the Fox News Channel telling you torndaoes in Ks\Mo\Ok are very probable when it is Spring\Summer and it is cloudy and stormy looking in the sky.

Astounding even!

What's amazing to me is that this issue irks you enough that you're willing to spend what has to be hours on here ranting about it.

But yeah, I'm content with the little radar in the corner unless there's an actual tornado warning.

Unfortunately the Fox 4Warn $19.99 weather radio doesn't have that option. I do get alerted, but for the lower price the only features it comes with are plugged in or not plugged in.

Now that I know that option exists, I will look into getting a new one with that capability. Thanks.

...the national weather service has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for... pahrump.. nevada. this storm contains dangerous rain and winds in excess of 30 miles per hour. it will arrive in kansas city at 11:07 pm... next tuesday. the safest place during a thunderstorm is in your bed sleeping. if you are sleeping now unplug the stupid radio.
