ATLANTA PRO EQUIPMENT IN STONE BRO. HERE IS A PHOTO OF THE HAIL IN THE SAME AREA. IT WAS AROUND THE SIZE OF PING- PONG BALLS. THIS IS THE VIEW FOR MANY DRIVERS. ARE MOBILE WEATHER LAB HAS BEEN TRAVELING THROUGH THE HEAVY RAIN IN BUTLER COUNTY WITH SOME OF THE HEAVIEST RAIN ALONG FOR 22 WHAT EXACTLY IS THE REASON FOR ALL OF THE SEVERE WEATHER IN THE FIRST FEW MONTHS OF THE YEAR, JOHN SHUMWAY IS LIVE WITH SOME ANSWERS. BACK IT HAS BEEN A PRETTY INTENSE DAY OF WEATHER AROUND HERE. LAST EIGHT HOURS OR SO, ESPECIALLY THE LAST THREE OR FOUR HOURS. WE ARE ON ROUTE EIGHT ABOUT NINE OR 10 MILES SOUTH OF THE CITY OF BUTLER. YOU CAN SEE HOW INTENSE THE RAIN IS IN THE WATER POOLING TO THE SIDE. AFTER THE WEEKEND WE HAVE HAD, ESPECIALLY SEEING THE STORMS IN OHIO AND TO THE WEST, I WENT TO OUR TWO METEOROLOGISTS TO ASKED THEM WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. THE DEVASTATION ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS HEARTBREAKING AND IT KEEPS COMING AFTER DAY. FROM OKLAHOMA TO OHIO, ALL THANKS TO A SUBTROPICAL JET STREAM. A STRONG AND POWERFUL WIND GENERALLY IS HOVERING A COUPLE THOUSAND FEET ABOVE US THAT PUMPS IN THE MOISTURE, PUMPS IN THE HEAT AND IF YOU WALKED OUTSIDE TO DATE YOU NOTICED THE MOISTURE AND HEAT. THOSE ARE THE INGREDIENTS MIXING INTO POWERFUL WINDS WHICH CREATES LIFT. THE LIFT CREATES THUNDERSTORMS, INTENSE LIFT CAN INTENSIFY THE THUNDERSTORMS AND CAN LEAD TO EVEN WORSE LIKE TORNADOES. THE LINE OF THE JET STREAM OF LOVE IS VISIBLE IN THE TRACK OF THE DEVASTATION. EVEN HERE IN PENNSYLVANIA. ACROSS THE STATE SO FAR THIS YEAR, NORMALLY OUR BUSIEST TIME OF THE YEAR IS JUNE AND JULY. WE HAVEN’T EVEN GOTTEN THERE THAT WE HAVE HIT OUR YEARLY AVERAGE OF TORNADOES WHICH IS 16. METEOROLOGISTS SAY A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM IN THE SOUTH IS HOLDING THIS IN PLACE. GOOD NEWS IS THE ELEMENTS THAT CAUSED THE DAMAGE IN OHIO AND POINTS WEST ARE MOVING THIS WAY, BUT, — THE AIR MASSES MODIFY AS THEY GO FROM WEST TO EAST, SO WE WOULDN’T EXPECT SOMETHING QUITE LIKE THAT, IT’S RARE HERE, IT HAS HAPPENED. THE THREAT SHOULD SUBSIDE AFTER THURSDAY. THAT SAID IF A TORNADO IS SOUNDED FOR YOUR AREA, — THAT MEANS GETTING TO THE INSIDE OR SAFEST PART OF YOUR HOME. GET TO A LOW LEVEL IN YOUR HOUSE. WAIT OUT THE STORM. AWAY FROM WINDOWS WITH AS MANY WALLS BETWEEN YOU AND THE STORM IS YOU CAN GET. AS WE ARE TAKING PICTURES, THIS IS NOT THE FLAT MIDWEST WERE STORMS CAN BE SEEN FOR MILES. IF YOU CAN SEE A TORNADO TOUCHING THE GROUND HERE, YOU ARE TOO DARN CLOSE. Reporter: ONE MORE WORD OF CAUTION ABOUT THE STORMS WE ARE GETTING. THIS RAIN IS SO INTENSE, POOLING OF WATER ON THE ROADS IS HAPPENING. HE SOUGHT AS WE WERE COMING THROUGH THE TOWN OF BUTLER WITH PEOPLE DRIVING THROUGH WITHOUT THINKING TWICE. YOU KNOW THE OLD ADAGE, DON’T DRIVE IN THE WATER, STAY OUT OF THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO IDEA EXACTLY HOW DEEP IT IS.
