The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Bulletin
Happy Fourth of July everybody! There is some severe weather going on in our area at the moment and the National Weather Service is warning residents that severe thunderstorms are possible.
Currently there is a large storm complex working its way eastward just north of Reno. That major storm triggered a severe storm warning and extreme southern Lassen County was affected.
Have a safe and happy Fourth of July! -jc
