Max Armstrong talks about severe weather and bird migration. (audio)

In the first months of this year, we have not had much severe weather. Here is comes this week. Nebraska and South Dakota have the best chance for this evening. Forecasters say Oklahoma could get its first tornado this week.

There’s a red flag warning in region around Chicago today.

A farmer at Gowrie, Iowa, was lucky and escaped injury when he pulled his tractor and implement across railroad tracks. Train barreled into ripper he was pulling. When he heard the whistle on the Union Pacific train, he couldn’t stop.

Birds are migrating north this weekend. At Lexington, Ky., Kay said she had never seen one until this weekend. Mrs. Armstrong feeds hummingbirds. Did you know to maintain the metabolism they have, they have to visit as many as 2,000 flowers a day?
