Strong storms, tornadoes possible in parts of Deep South

If a Tornado Warning is issued by the National Weather Service, a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. The worst of the weather now is expected to affect regions further north, with the possibility of severe weather locally rising Wednesday.

A Tornado Watch has been issued for portions of north Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee through 6 pm Wednesday.

No serious injuries were reported when the tornado touched down three times in Sampson County late Tuesday afternoon. At least six homes were damaged, with the damage ranging from minor to severe, the Sheriff's Office said.

Winds shut down the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Marson says residents who don't feel they have adequate shelter from tornados are encouraged to go to Golden Age Manor, where the basement is made available as a storm shelter for the public. This will not only provide more instability to parts of the area, especially Southside, but will also act as a trigger mechanism to get storms going.
