Oh NBC...You've Gone and done it Again

This morning NBC News sent out this tweet warning people of a powerful storm headed their way:

There was just a few problems with NBC's info. First the map is from yesterday afternoon and many of the places they have in the storms path, aren't even expected to get a rain shower Today.

Second, a "gustnado" is not normally very dangerous. It's small spin-up along the leading edge of a gust front produced by a thunderstorm. Often it looks like a tornado, but does not pack a very powerful punch. If one hit your house dead on, you might get a broken window.

So NBC's "we're all going to die!" tweet was not very accurate.

But you can understand how they made such a mistake, it's not like they own the Weather Channel or anything.

Oh wait!
