Officials following storms

May 31, 2012

Catawba County authorities and emergency officials say they are monitoring a strong threat of severe storms Friday and Saturday.

"The storms (Friday) will be the result of a warm and cold front colliding in a line that goes roughly from Gaffney to Hickory to Taylorsville," said Karyn Yaussy, Catawba County Emergency Management coordinator.

"Points east of that line will see a higher risk of severe weather than areas west of that line. When warm and cold fronts collide there is a chance of isolated tornadoes, hail, strong winds and periods of intense rainfall."

Emergency officials remind citizens to plan a safe place within homes, offices and schools to go when storms strike, and to stay tuned to weather radios and local media outlets for the latest information.
