Weather Update 5:30pm

Many Scattered showers will be possible overnight tonight, but more of the focus will be across eastern and southern Missouri. Tuesday will bring rain chances further north with showers and thunderstorms arriving in the afternoon. There will be a SLIGHT risk for severe storms Tuesday night with a threat of large hail.

We want you to pay close attention to the forecast for Wednesday and Wednesday night and please "share" this graphic with your friends and family as a very active severe weather day could be found across the region. The Storms Prediction Center has put portions of Kansas and Missouri under a MODERATE risk for severe storms with a SLIGHT risk of severe weather over nearly the entire state of Missouri.

Rainfall will be plenty through the week, with upwards of 2" to 4" of rain possible by Thursday. If these rain amounts fall, it will lead to flooding on rivers and streams. Please continue to monitor the forecast for the middle of the week.

Missouri Needs Your Help with HB 653 * The Comprehensive 9-1-1 bill.

HB 653 can help many Missouri counties get back on track. It will allow for Missouri counties to have another option for adequately funding their 9-1-1 Communications system. While we know of 17 counties still only receiving landline 9-1-1 calls on a regular phone line, with no location or telephone information and along with those 17 counties, another 21 counties have landline e9-1-1 capabilities, (meaning they get the landline call with the customers billing address and call back number) but no wireless 9-1-1 capabilities.

Missouri has fallen behind on keeping its citizens safe. We have worked hard for 15 years trying to educate our representatives, you and those before you. It is a tragedy that many calls continue to get lost and people suffer without hope of help due to the crisis we are facing in Missouri regarding 9-1-1. We are teaching our children to dial 9-1-1 for help, meanwhile the 9-1-1 centers that are in place are being threatened with decreasing revenue and are draining their local municipalities, counties and the public safety agencies that are already seeing tight budgets.

Missouri’s 9-1-1 system ranks far behind the national standard level of service. If we continue to ignore this problem, the only thing that will go away is the service we promise and the hope we teach our children and citizens that someone will help you and find you if you call 9-1-1.

Please help us get back on track. Texting to 9-1-1 is on our doorstep and we can’t get simple 9-1-1 call information throughout Missouri. How far are we willing to let this go?

Please act urgently on this bill so that Missouri does not fall further behind in 9-1-1 services and jeopardizes the safety of our citizens and visitors.
