KAUKAUNA — A tornado watch is in effect until 9 p.m. Tuesday for all of northeast Wisconsin, including Outagamie, Calumet, Brown and Door counties.

tornado watch means the weather conditions for tornadoes are favorable during the next few hours. A watch usually covers a large area of several cities, counties, and sometimes even multiple states.

What should I do if I am under a tornado watch?

  • Locate your family members and pets.
  • Review your family disaster plan, including where you will take shelter.
  • Monitor your NOAA Weather Radio, smartphone apps, and local news for updates.
  • Stay aware of changing weather conditions. Remember, even if a tornado does not form, severe thunderstorms can pose a safety risk too.
  • Make sure your emergency supplies such as flashlights, water, and batteries are accessible.
  • Stay away from windows and keep them closed.
