Watch vs Warning Tornados


Both warnings and watches are issued for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. These are two important ways you can anticipate a potential emergency. Watches and warnings are broadcast over the radio and TV and issued through emergency notification systems and apps.

  • Watch – Conditions are favorable for the severe weather event in or near the watch area. When a watch is announced, stay alert and be ready to take action.
  • Warning – Severe weather event is imminent or occurring in the warned area. Take action based on the emergency at hand.
