I assume most people are aware, but if the alert is a watch it’s pretty meh. Go about whatever you were doing and just be aware the situation could potentially escalate. If it’s a warning it means shit is currently going down get to safety immediately. That being said the joke about midwesterners standing outside watching ridiculous storms is 100% true. When I was growing up it seemed like we had multiple severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings a week and it kind of desensitizes you. Thunderstorm warnings we would watch outside, but tornado warnings we were instantly in the basement. Probably helps that my parents lived through what is believed to be an EF5 that leveled the town they were living in before I was born.
