Severe Weather Saturday

CREATED Apr. 13, 2012

Omaha, NE - The SPC has already issued an unusual high risk warning for tornadoes Saturday. They are comparing this threat to the tornado outbreak in Alabama last year.

It was just four years ago during severe weather season a storm spared no one as it rolled through the metro.

The Qwest Center then suffered minor damage and it couldn't have come at a worse time with the Olympic Swim trials hours away.

Saturday a similar setup, severe weather including thunderstorms, hail, straightline winds and a tornado threat in the forecast.

Around the same time thousands of music fans will be heading downtown for a Jimmy Buffett concert at the CenturyLink.

A spokesperson from CenturyLink says they are always prepared for an emergency during any event especially if there is threatening weather.

Saturday night is also prom night for many young people in the metro. So as teens are heding out to their annual black tie affair, parents might want to insure their kids know what to do just incase mother nature decides to strike.
