Monday, April 13th, 11:52am: Tornado Watch Issued, High Wind Warning Continues

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for Stone Harbor and surrounding areas.  The Watch is in effect on Monday, April 13th, until 6:00pm.  A High Wind Warning continues for the community.

Strong winds continue to impact our region due to a storm system, and a cold front moving through our region later today.  The front may spark some heavy thunderstorms, strong gusty winds, and heavy rainfall.  If you see lightning or hear thunder, seek shelter immediately.  Never drive on a street that is flooded.

Remember, the Watch means that conditions are favorable for the development of a tornado.  A Warning means a tornado is imminent.  Continue to monitor traditional media outlets for updated information.  If you experience a power outage, contact Atlantic City Electric’s outage line at 1-800-833-7476.
