During a severe weather event, many normal activities take a back seat, as storm debris, downed power lines, and heavy rain/hail affect public and private infrastructures.

Watch the latest forecasts on KAIT-TV at 4:30-7 a.m., Midday at 11 a.m., News at 5, 6, and 10 p.m. on KAIT8 and at 6:30 p.m. on NBC Region 8.  Newscasts are available over the air, on cable & satellite where available, on kait8.com, and on the Region 8 News mobile app for smartphones and tablets (to install or update the news app - text NEWSAPP to 52488 - msg&data rates may apply - or search KAIT in your mobile marketplace)

Install the advanced StormTRACK 8 app on your mobile device (to install or update the weather app, text WEATHERAPP to 52488 - msg&data rates may apply - or search KAIT in your mobile marketplace)
