I was broadcasting live severe weather coverage the night of the Norman tornado. I explained why it was going to occur several minutes before it developed and then tracked it until it lifted. There was no official tornado warning from the National Weather Service at the time it was doing damage at the Riverwind Casino on Hwy 9 and I-35. Below is an excerpt from my Facebook Live coverage and a few pictures of the damage:

The weak tornado was rated an EF-1 by the National Weather Service damage assessment team.

In addition to the live update, my free weather app, ATsWeatherToGo, also provided a heads up that a tornado could be expected with the proprietary “twisting storm alert”. Natalie Crimmins received such a warning and was able to protect her family in time. No other app will tell you of a developing tornado and give you as much as an additional 15 minutes to prepare before an official warning comes out. Remember, at the time the tornado was causing damage at Riverwind an official warning had not been given yet, which is how the other apps notify you. So what are you waiting for?
