Tornado Warning Issued for Central Elko County Until 1:15pm

Posted: Updated:
The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for central Elko County until 1:15pm today.

At 12:40pm, NWS Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado near Adobe Summit.

The safest place to be during a tornado is in a basement. Get under a workbench or other piece of sturdy furniture. If no basement is available...seek shelter on the lowest floor of the building in an interior hallway or room such as a closet. Use blankets or pillows to cover your body and always stay away from windows.

If in mobile homes or vehicles evacuate them and get inside a substantial shelter. If no shelter is available lie flat in the nearest ditch or other low spot and cover your head with your hands.

A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect until 7:00 pm Wednesday evening for northeast Nevada.
