Just a little typo can cause mass confusion... - WU

**This post was archived from the MemphisWx WunderBlog.**
As I was browsing the TalkWeather forum, some people were talking about a severe thunderstorm warning issued today in Fulton County, AR. It said, and I quote, "AT 423 PM CST...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM 12 MILES WEST OF VIOLA...MOVING EAST AT 455 MPH." Wow! A TalkWeather member said, "This storm should reach Memphis in ten minutes. Will be north of HUntsville By 5:00pm! Expect winds with this to make it seem like the world is coming to an end!!!!!!" Another one said, "That's enough to blow the water right out of the Mississippi River."

Note: four minutes after the warning was issued, the NWS in Little Rock corrected the warning.
