There is now a new twitter account that shows all the local storm reports nationwide that just launched yesterday afternoon. Local Storm Reports are posted when the National Weather Service has recieved information regarding severe weather activity, either tornadoes, hail damage or other important information.
So be sure to follow @LSRWeather on twitter for the latest local storm reports. Other great twitter accounts include @WarnTornado for tornado warnings and sightings on twitter and @Mesodiscussions to get the latest Mesodiscussions as they are issued. As always the best way to get severe weather information is a NOAA Weather Radio, which is on sale right now!
