KTA to Change Its Weather Alert Procedure after Mistaken Tornado Warning Tweet

KSNW News reports, “A KTA spokesperson said on [August 25] it will verify all tornado warnings from AccuWeather, a private forecasting company, with the National Weather Service (NWS) before it sends alerts to its customers. The change comes after the authority sent out a tweet on Wednesday night [August 24] that said there was a tornado warning near Lawrence on I-70. The NWS did not put out a tornado warning for that location.”
