the per week rate was incorrectly posted in the city's press release. It has now been corrected to reflect the proper per month rate increase.
Just wanted to point out and Thank Tim for his prompt service. I got a call from him last Friday when the sirens were going off about the tornado warning... the thing is, I got that call about 90 seconds before the sirens went off. I called my wife who was shopping at Kohls. She actually was the one to notify the store of the warning. I had been watching the nt weather page, so I knew the storms were likely to miss us and that they were a good 20-30 minutes away. So, during the call to my wife, I told her she had plenty of time to make it home safely.
Timeline of events...
1-I got a call from Tim telling me of the Tornado warning.
2-I called my wife.
3-she immediately went to check out and leave.
4-She tells the checkout girl of the warning.
5-the check out girl tells a security officer.
6-the security officer goes outside to check
7- my wife leave Kohl's.
8- The security officer hears the sirens.
9-all customers are corralled into a storm shelter at Kohl's.
I am just saying that 90 seconds can make a huge difference. A lot can happen in 90 seconds.
There is nothing at all to indicate to us that anyone has been harmed in the Wal-Mart parking lot at least recently. I have asked our reporters to look into this, but as of right now, this seems to be an incorrect statement. If mikemojc or anyone else has any time frame or more information, please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org.
To sign up for this, click on link in the top navigation under "Weather". I have been getting these for a few months now. It is faster than the tv and I don't have to have the tv on! In fact I could have them sent SMS to my cell, but I turn that off at night so I chose to have the regular phone alert. I also get the alerts via email. The other night we had Severe Thunderstorm Warnings that resulted in 3 quick calls to my home. The 3 calls was because weather changes, and the alerts change. Our Meteorologist Tim Root has been doing this since the 70's... and he has the most accurate forecasting you are going to find.
I have pulled a few comments that made accusations that could not be immediately confirmed or refuted. If you have any specific information, please email be directly at email@example.com.
I am looking into this. As far as I can see, nothing has been removed all day.
The police report is now available.
The official police report states only that the male suspect was heavy set. This description came from the victim.
The initial police report has been posted.
