[ARCHIVED] Severe storms possible Thursday afternoon into evening

MARCH 2 AT 8 A.M. Storms are moving through the Allen area Thursday afternoon with the possibility of turning severe by the evening. All modes of severe weather are possible including large hail, gusty wind and tornadoes. Severe weather is expected to continue through about 10 p.m. this evening. Residents should secure outdoor items and write their home address on their trash and recycling carts to help identify them if they blow away.

The best source for weather warnings is an NOAA all-hazards weather radio which activates when it receives a radio signal from the NWS. You can put the radio near your bed to wake you up if you’re asleep, and there’s adaptive technology available for people with vision or hearing impairments. View NOAA radio frequencies.
