thee, so at a very wrapped pace we are seeing this, area shaded in readies area of most concern, right now and you can see progression of that line, knott weakening at all across delaware, if anything, now strengthening and we have tornado warning in effect for next several minutes. it was until 6:45, for portions of delaware, also we will be contending with torrential rain. you will deal with straight line wind, in addition to the possibility of that tornado being on the ground as this cell continues to move off to thee, so again, here's more information, kent, sussex county delaware mainly sussex but portion office kent, cities including in the tornado warning that runs until 6:45 allendale, greenwood, milford, slaughter beach. you need to be taking precautionness these areas. a tornado warning, when you have a warning issue you need to take action, no longer, a watch, yield those safety precautions when move to the lowest level of your home, basement if you have it, if not you want to be on the
first floor, you want to be away from windows and with the most walls around you so interior closet, a bathroom would be good, stay away from those windows with the potential for strong wind, produced by a tornado, so, storm scan three showing us it is juste, or excuse me just west of the milford area. we will continue to movie at a pretty fast pace at 40 to 50 miles an hour. we are seeing rotation signatures right now on doppler radar that indicates possibility of a tornado embedded within this line of severe thunderstorms. storm tracker there you can see in the owens area, 6:23. so really in the next couple minutes, oakly 625:67:89eman heights 6:32 and slaughter beach 6:39 as we are seeing east northeasterly motion within this severe thunderstorm. a tornado warning in effect right new for parts of the kent, sussex county delaware, until 6:45, indications on
radar of rotation, embedded within one of these severe thunderstorm cells, this is, more information, on that tornado radar indicated at this point. so it is not observed but that doesn't mean it is not on the ground. it is very difficult to observe, and torrential rain and nearly continuing lightening, and impact flying debris, dangerous, damage to roof, windows possible, and vehicles so stay in your home, lowest level in the basement, even better. >> are, interior closet and bathroom. tracking storm. we gave you projection there is 6:25,eman heights 6:32. line, is right now, if we can pan out and give you a look at the motion of this, progress of this severe line, thank you , we will show you what is going on, continuing to move, at a wrapped pace, this over the last, over last two hours. area is the tornado warning so
just kind of south of the milford area you are included in the warning as well but very edge of the kent county is under this warning. but even areas just outside of the warning, need to have a concern, as the cell continues to move off to thee northeast, we are dealing with the a tornado warning that is in effect until 6:45. so take cover now, and we will see continue to see the line, progressing off to thee, the potential for tornado is there it is radar indicated not indicated on the ground but we are seeing, strong wind, even if we are in the dealing with the tornado we are dealing with a very intense, thunderstorm, severe in nature with the possibility of very strong wind, even outside, the tornado potential, 60, possibly 70 miles an hour of straight line wind, torrential rain and nearly continuing lightening as well. we have taken lightening off because it gives you a better picture of the radar. the radar and everyone showing us but we are seeing nearly
continuing lightening especially in this portion, down from about dover, to milford and then stretching down into the sussex county delaware, the area of concern thinks tornado warning. continues to move off to thee northeast, national weather service not, dropping this off yet so you need to take proper precautions f they see this line maintaining strength or portion of the line this particular cell, it will eventually make its way to the northern delaware, beaches. that would include rehoboth beach, lewis, delaware beach area we have had numerous reports of down trees and wires across pennsylvania, when the line came through but this portion of the line much more potent then when we even saw that was working through parts of the pennsylvania, and west of the i-95 corridor. so this definitely packing a punch this portion of our severe thunderstorm line. again tornado warning just joining us right now in effect for parts of the sussex and kent county delaware until 6:45. you need to take caution.
get into a basement, a lower interior home, or your lowest level of your home, you want to have as many walls around as you can and be aware from windows. very serious situation. we had a severe thunderstorm watch for all delaware valley throughout the evening hours, and now main concern is this area in delaware where we have tornado warning. remember a watch means that conditions are favorable for severe weather. we had that watch in effect all day but once you have that warning that is issued be it a severe thunderstorm warnings respect storm warning or tornado warning that means warnings mean take action, no longer observing conditions, you need to respond to the conditions, because there could be a threat, there could be a threat to, you personally , and could be a threat to your property so you want to be sure to respond accordingly. this is one of the more serious types of weather we can have come through delaware valley this tornado warning kent and sussex county delaware. cities included, allendale greenwood, slaughter beach, for the next, whatever 6:25,
6:30 so for the next 15 minutes people affected by this tornado warning, about 10,000 people need to be seeking shelter or if you need to help home in your home area , hold off on that, commute, until this line passes on through. this is our main concern we are still dealing with strong thunderstorms activity moving through south jersey and approaching the shores, head up there, dealt with sunny conditions for much of the air noon but conditions are changing rapidly along the coast for you as these cells continue to move, your way, but again main concern that we're focusing is this tornado warning for parts of the delaware, and we have had severe weather rolling through the area throughout the day, line really hasn't decreased in strength, if anything we had sunshine today but further helped destabilize atmosphere and really allowed these storms to fire up, at a very rapidly and also maintain their strength, over the last several hours as the line progressed all the way from the lehigh valley, berks
county to i-95, south jersey and hitting the shore. tornado warning. we can zoom down there milford is included in that warning, just a slice of kent county but you need to take those proper precautions regardless just south of river view seeing heavy rain coming through, tornado warnings stretched out in the delaware bay, but take proper precautions. just on the edge of that tornado warning but still you need to yield that safety protocol, and heading to the basement, or on the first floor of your house if you don't have a basement, interior closet, interior bathroom as we could contend with in fact a tornado. so we will track this out a little bit show you storm lines. movinge northe at 40 to 50 miles an hour this particular tornado warn cell, so federalsberg rolling in for you, 6:32, anderson cross road and 6:39 slaughter beach. so you want to be taking that appropriate action as the cell continues to move your way.
so milford area you are being impacted by this cell right now, it will continue to move off to thee northeast you can see that progression over the last couple of hours, this cell is spreading its way east northeast bound, right along the bay, moving for you as well tornado warning in effect until 6:45. we will keep a close watch on this ukee and jessica i'm tossing it back to you. >> we want to give you a quick break and let everybody know we are coming up at 6:30 when we would go to the "cbs evening news" but we will not doing that we have to stay on for a little while to watch this tornado warning. i just talk with my dad about two or three or four minutes ago in dover and as you showed us, it is starting to move out bad weather but that once again is kent county, we're talking further south, correct >> absolutely, yeah this line has looked impressive even if it was, west, of kent county, delaware it was maintaining its strength, that nearly continuing lightening lightening strikes kept going
as it progressed milese bound so it did maintain that strength and it is really still moving, at a fast pace and very potent cell and most component portion of the severe thunderstorms. we are in a enhanced risk as issued by storm prediction center. there is five levels of risk, and enhanced third on the scale so we did have that, conducive environment for severe weather. it is coming with the line of severe storms, we had multiple severe thunderstorm warnings across pennsylvania, that into new jersey and as a line continues to move eastbound and we are dealing with these warnings in delaware, severe thunderstorm warning and now in particular, we will dangerous type of warnings a tornado warning we need to be respond agoe
