I took the photo with my phone camera of the National Weather Service's website radar image this morning. The red box indicates a tornado warning and the green boxes indicate flood warnings; blue means light rain, green a bit heavier, and yellow, orange and red very heavy indeed. Fortunately for me, I live north of the warning areas, so this didn't affect me--we had thunder and some heavy rain but no tornadoes or floods at my house.
