"Most important thing is just that people are paying attention," said WTVA Chief Meteorologist, Matt Laubhan. "Then when a warning is issued they know where to go."
Laubhan adds that this time of year we have a peak chance of storms at night.
"You have to be prepared. So that when you hear that rumble of thunder, and its two o'clock in the morning you know where to go," Laubhan said.

NBC affiliate WTVA-TV chief meteorologist Matt Laubhan in Tupelo, Miss., was reporting live on the severe weather about 3 p.m. when he realized the twister was coming close enough that maybe he and his staff should abandon the television studio.
"This is a tornado ripping through the city of Tupelo as we speak. And this could be deadly," he said in a video widely tweeted and broadcast on YouTube.
Moments later he adds, "A damaging tornado. On the ground. Right now."
The video then shows Laubhan peeking in from the side to see if he is still live on the air before yelling to staff off-camera to get down in the basement. - Cast, 20 April 2015 [cached]
