Storm damage reports are critical, and the more reports we get of heavy rain, damaging or high winds, and hail verifies the intensity of storms. This info could also help save someone’s life who is in the path of the storm, by letting our partners, the National Weather Service, know that the storm was producing damage and a warning is needed or still needed for the next county in the storm’s path.
