9:31 am
since we started the program at 9:00, we have added an additional inch of rain in arundell county. we are basically four and three- quarters of an inch of rain. in addition to the heavy rainfall which extended up to baltimore county, closing in close to six inches, there is a tornado warning, including southern maryland and we have had a few of these that have not transpired. but the warns are often doppler radar indicated. which means there is rotation in the clouds, not making its way to the surface. we take our velocity scans. showing wind going away and towards the radar site, locked in close together, the possibility of rotation, that's the case right now. let's take this out of the 3d mode and bring it closer and it looks like between hills near
9:32 am
shores and annapolis, there maybe the possibility of getting rotation here. there may be a little rotation in these clouds. doesn't necessarily mean it will work its way towards the surface. we have this tornado warning, including southern maryland. we'll focus on arundell county, we have this storm near silver bay, as indicated. basically, the areas of concerns -- if you are in those locations, this is the time to turn up the volume on television so you can continue to hear us and go into an interior room in your roam. it would best be a room without windows or get into the bathtub because those walls would be reenforced. >> if you have a basement, now is the time to go there trees
9:33 am
are weakened from the drought we had this summer and all of the heavy rainfall, closing in on six inches, there is a possibility of debris across the region. >> let back this up. it appears the heaviest of the rainfall is near annapolis. it's not just about the rain, it is the possible rotation at cloud level. often times, with tropical systems and even though this is no longer a tropical storm, it has a lot of energy and a lot of rotation and it is coming at us in a few different pieces of energy and trying to work its way toward the north. these individual storms are moving to roughly 25-30-miles per hour. ground winds have not been tavon. all it takes is a funnel cloud to form anticipate drop to the surface to carry the strong winds down on towards the ground. it's about the heavy rain. we are highlighting velocity scan which looks inside of of
9:34 am
clouds and where the winds are moving away and toward the radar site. what i see is west of arnold with a possibility of rotation and no confirmation on the groundent that's the reason for this tornado warning. i wanted to make that very clear. we have had a few of these already and there are likely to be more. we don't expect strong tornadoes, ef1s, 60-70-miles an hour, enough to do some damage, but not absolute destruction. it is the fact that there is a lot of rotation in the clouds and a lot of energy with these storms. we have continued to watch them basically hugging the chesapeake bay. we have had amounts of 5 1/2 to 6 inches of rain just since midnight and there is a lot more to come, with these conveyor belts lined up, there are places that will get more rain with the rest of the area averaging an inch and a half to
9:35 am
two inches. widespread flooding. we'll have more rain throughout the day and into tonight. more on our forecast coming up in just a bit, stay tuned. back to you. >> thanks, justin. >> you have to be prepared in a situation like this, that means keep a radio with you, have batteries with you, listen to television and radio reports. listen for flood warnings, reports of flooding actually happening and be prepared to evacuate at a moment's notice and stay there. stay away from floodwaters. do not try to drive-thru water if you see ponding. especially at night, because it's harder to tell what is flooding and what is not. >> i want to make sure you are prepared, pick a safe room in your home where your family can gather. justin, you have been an advocate of getting into the bathtub where the plumbing is and also try to secure your
9:36 am
lawn furniture, trash cans, pick up anything that can be taken up by wind. finally, don't wait until you see a tornado. make sure you are listening. i heard you, the other day, say keep the tv real loud. make sure you can hear something and make sure you are safe. >> abc 2 news has a list of all of those things. we'll be right back.
9:37 am
9:38 am
9:39 am
>> thanks for staying with us this morning. we definitely have some breaking news going on. tornado warning in arundell county until 10:15. >> this is the third time this week. let's go over to justin to find out the latest. >> this is the impact of the remnants of tropical storm nicole trying to work its way up the coast. we are getting one of many
9:40 am
pieces of energy. we do this, first, tornado warning for 10:15. -- we have been watching most of the energy ride up the chesapeake bay and hug this side of the bay where they have had the heaviest of the rainfall. we have the u.s. navel academy, now over six inches of rainfall. we have had more than an inch of rain as we started our program. more than a half foot of rain since midnight and again, we have more of of the storm to come. we'll check out other locations. i want to point out, pasadena, 4.75 inches. still a respectable amount. we just went 4.98. we could probably clock five inches using this screen before we are done. wins have not been that strong. we are talking about a tornado
9:41 am
warning until 10:15ent we really have not pushed that muchy the way of strong winds are but there is a possibility that some rotation at cloud level can work its way into the funnel cloud at a 14-mile per hour wind at one location. just a quarter mile away request can quickly pick up 40- 60-mile per hour. now, we have five inches in pasadena. i told you we could do this while we were on the screen. we will show you maryland's most powerful doppler radar. we aring looking at a time lapse. annapolis. arnold. just the last two hours, ritchie highway. i want to highlight, what you are looking at, moving away from the radar site and that's where they are really locked in
9:42 am
close together. >> that's the reason why the national weather service has posted a tornado warning. this has not come out of this office, all watches and warnings are governed by the national weather service and they indicate there may be a possible tornado. i want to highlight some of the locations they have included -- the best thing to do is go to the lowest location in your home. if you are in amebule home or vehicle, try to find the best shelter in the interior location. these turn out to be weak twisters, ef20, ef1. that doesn't mean you are out of the woods. >> otherwise, a tornado watch for the rest of us.
9:43 am
heavy rain thebes tends into baltimore county. kingsville and glenn arm -- places getting extremely heavy rain from the same conveyor belt and across to the east side of the beltway. so, we'll check out some of the rainfall totals. it doesn't matter if you have three or six inches in your back backyard. that's enough to overstress the storm drains and other possibilities. like the report we had early on in annapolis, there may be some potential damage or destruction. with six inches of rain, i think that's a definite possible. please be careful. this is a very serious situation. we are not done by any stretch. this tornado warning extends until 10:15. we'll probably have more posted throughout the dayent and we'll
9:44 am
probably have extensive flooding. >> thanks, justin. >> we will stay with us until we know what is going on. meantime, if you are living in arundell county, and seeing anything, we would love to hear from you. give us a call. >> again, this is the time to go over our checklist, here, this is where you have to listen to your radio, listen to your tv reports and noah radio for any reports of flooding actually happening in your area. be prepared to get out at a mowment's notice and head for higher ground. stay away from floodwaters and of course, don't try to drive- thru them. you will come up on a lot of roads that will be floodsent do not try to drive-thru them. be ebb treatmently cautious at night, when it's harder to see the floodwaters. >> pick a safe room where you and your family can gather in the event of a tornado. you want one on the lowest
9:45 am
floor, if possible, with no windows. and try to secure lawn furniture or trash cans, anything that can be picked up by wind and hurt someone. finally, don't wait, listen and watch and find the safe room and turn the tv up. >> we are 30 minutes away from that expiring, the tornado. >> is this the same system that produced the warning earlier? >> maybe the same piece of energy, yes, we are watching this. >> some of these storms earlier 40-miles per hour, directional speed to the north and this storm looks a little slower, talking about 25-miles per hour, but yeah, we are watching stuff from the south passing to the north. but we had a tornado warning earlier that we were tracking to the northent this is another piece of 0 energy, but we'll track this one because that means eastern baltimore and hartford county could be next on the live as these things continue to track their way toward the north. we'll get back to it and back to the report in a few minutes.
9:46 am

9:49 am
watchings and warnings all morning longent we have been running in between weather sets and lettings folks who own our internet know, we want to get right to justin and find out the latest situation. >> in these types of situations, we get tornado warns that never transpire into a tornado. there is alot of energy we can see inside of the clouds and never work their way down to the groundent that's the reason why we have to take each one individually seriously many there is a lot going on today. i want to point out under the tornado watch, you can see it over my head as well. we have that going into the afternoon. tornado warning light goes to -- actually expires -- until 10:15. in addition to that, these red shades, severe thunderstorm warning expiring at 10:00. in addition to that, we have
9:50 am
flash flood warnings that take us into the afternoon and wind advisories, here's the rainfall we have from the locations we have loaded since midnight. annapolis -- we started this show 9:00 with 4.8 to 4.9-inch. we have closing in on two two inches an hour. this stuff is rolling to the north. bel aire out of the edge of it, pretty heavy, still. glenn oak at 1.89. west mintier still over an inch and a half. most of it seems to be locked in around the bay. jet stream rolling to the north. i want to get out of the way so
9:51 am
i can highlight some of they rain in orange sectionsent western sections of hartford county. west of bel aire, we are watching places from jarrettsville and toward the south. this does include kingsville. this is rolling up and down route 1, hartford road, bel aire road and down through perry hall, we have this corner of the beltway over towards lake march be and the rose dale split. we are looking at a thunderstorm, eight miles south of shadyside. let's pull this back. another piece of energy. watching heavy rain. shadyside is south of route 50. this is the thunderstorm they are talking about. let's put that velocity scan in. as you can see, it appears to be some possible energy and rotation in those clouds. let's take you back toward
9:52 am
